Review

Advance Praise for "The Gargoyle"

"I was blown away by Andrew Davidson's "The Gargoyle," It reminded me of "Life of Pi," with its unanswered (and unanswerable) contradictions. A hypnotic, horrifying, astonishing novel that manages, against all odds, to be redemptive."
--Sara Gruen, author of "Water for Elephants"

""The Gargoyle" is purely and simply an amazement, a riot, a blast. It's hard to believe that this is Andrew Davidson's first novel: He barrels out of the chute with the narrative brio and confidence, not to mention the courage, of a seasoned master. This book plucks the reader off the ground and whirls her through the air until she shouts from sheer abandonment and joy. What a great, grand treat."
--Peter Straub

Spellbinding. . . . A page-turning adventure that will keep you reading well past bedtime. The Boston Globe An undeniably hot book. . . . It's as engrossing as it is gruesome, the kind of horror you watch with one eye closed. . . . A hell of a story. The Washington Post"Take a deep breath and plunge into this novel. It's a tale of love and redemption told through Davidson's haunting prose. " USA Today A transportingly unhinged debut. . . . Vigorous and impressive. The New York Times Keeps the pages turning. The Plain Dealer Take a deep breath and plunge into this novel. It's a tale of love and redemption told through Davidson's haunting prose. USA Today Mr. Davidson skillfully assembles a centuries-old puzzle involving a series of fables of undying love. . . . The reader is kept guessing until the final pages. The Wall Street Journal Mixes medical drama with medieval religious lore to explore the boundaries of faith and forgiveness. . . . Compelling. San Francisco Chronicle Reads like the mad spawn of Anne Rice and Stephen King. Providence Journal Original and highly addictive. . . . Captivating. . . . An impressive, memorable debut. The Denver Post A story that sweeps us in with no protest. You want to be lost in its pages. . . . The real tragedy of this book is that it ends. Daily News Beguiling. . . . Mixing romance, classic allusion and reality, Davidson's debut is a bravura performance. Marie Claire I was blown awayby Andrew Davidson's The Gargoyle.
