An architect and his wife live in seeming harmony with their pristine western surroundings—until a friend's hidden past unleashes a host of evils When Grant's marriage begins to fall apart, he reflects upon the perfect lives of his uncle Henry and aunt Edm\u00e9, self-sufficient intellectuals who live blissfully together in a home built by Henry in the high Rocky Mountains. But when Henry and Edm\u00e9 tell Grant of the terrible nighttime incidents that occurred on their property and culminated in the gruesome murder of one of their close friends, Grant moves in with them to help save an ideal he holds dear. Giovanni's Gift is a modern reinvention of the myth of Pandora's box, and a harrowing meditation on the allure of the American landscape—and the menace that lurks beneath the beauty of its surfaces.
