After 40 years living in Tasmania, Nancy Jiracek returns to her former home in Wisconsin, to find it has been transformed into a menagerie taken over by rabbits. Building Up: Tales From Below steps back 50 years telling the story of a young girl and her family’s life in a basement house. Building Up: Tales From Below blends in events of the times such as local babysitters who mysteriously disappear, and the macabre behaviour of an infamous local who becomes the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock’s horror film ‘Psycho’. This extraordinary book offers a voice from an underrepresented culture and overlooked layer of history.
