Synopsis:
Awakening in a burn ward after being horribly burned over much of his body after a terrible car accident, the cynical narrator is visited by a beautiful and enigmatic sculptress of gargoyles who tells him that they had once been lovers in medieval Germany and spins a tale of deathless love. A first novel.

Review:
"A transportingly unhinged debut novel....[THE GARGOYLE] incorporate[s] a wild, seemingly random array of tricks and tangents. But Mr. Davidson binds them together with vigorous and impressive narrative skill."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 07/31/2008

Review:
"This is an insane but well-crafted book, as grotesque as its heroine's carvings....Some novels about love's pains and rewards move far beyond common sense....One reason why poets have been so keen to send lovers to the pains of death or hell is that these are the things we feel love is like. Andrew Davidson does this, and more: his first novel is a fever dream of passion which does not have to make entire sense, because it is a powerful metaphor for deep emotion."

Roz Kaveney, Independent (London), 09/12/2008
