''[[EldritchLocation House]] of Leaves'' is a 2000 novel by Creator/MarkZDanielewski. It's about [[LemonyNarrator Johnny Truant]], a tattoo shop apprentice who finds the disheveled remains of a complex manuscript one night. These pages contain an amateurish critical dissertation, written by a recently deceased old man allegedly named Zampanò. The pages and scraps deal with a film called ''The Navidson Record'', made by photographer Will Navidson. Although Zampanò's text refers elaborately and lovingly to existing literature, Johnny soon finds out that the vast majority of Zampanò's cited sources do not actually exist. Neither, for that matter, does the film.

** And then there's Johnny's lengthy rant after discovering the "ftaires" document (see ThatWasTheLastEntry below), complaining about how old timey people use "f" instead of "s" (actually "'ſ'", an archaic form of "s"), and over the course of which he gradually beginf to replace more and more of his "s"s with "f"s until the final fentence contains no correctly typed "s"f at all. Made somewhat unfettling by the fact that he appearf to be doing thif involuntary and without realizing it.

* GratuitousForeignLanguage: There are entire paragraphs written entirely in [[GratuitousGerman German]] and [[GratuitousFrench French]] throughout the book, as well as untranslated chunks of ''TheDivineComedy'' and bits of [[AltumVidetur Latin]] and Greek, plus various others. Johnny even comments on the pretentiousness of Zampanò dropping in bits of foreign language where they don't seem to serve any purpose other than making him look erudite.

* BeastInTheMaze: The mysterious beast that stalks the explorers of the house, which quickly reveals itself to be an EldritchLocation that twists and changes around them and is compared to a labyrinth. What the beast is is left ambiguous, with various theories in and out of universe calling it a (or maybe ''the'') minotaur, a personification of the house, or an AnimalisticAbomination.
