The Gargoyle

Several days ago I finished the audio book The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson.

This is a gorgeous book, beautifully written and researched. A love story down to the bone but with a twist; the tantalizing blend of modern day with 14th century Europe with the story lines indelibly intertwined by the real time dance of a talented schizophrenic woman and a man who suffers a life threatening and life changing burn.

I'm not much of a book reviewer so I reference "Beauty and the Beast" from the NY Times.

The Gargoyle, a first novel for Mr. Davidson, is the best book I've read in many years.


  1. I'll have to add this to my list...trying to read more this year--a resolution I hope to keep

  2. That's high praise. I find that I am drawn to "first" novels, often without realizing it's an author's first novel until I've been drawn in. Maybe first-timers try harder?
