PRAISE FOR THE NEW GOTHIC

 

“A welcome, uncommonly imaginative anthology of a genre once described by L.P. Hartley as ‘the most exacting form of literary art.’”

New York Times Book Review

 

The New Gothic brilliantly reanimates—and reinvents—the genre of Mary Shelley and Edgar Allan Poe, celebrating the vigorous return of sophisticated horror. Eeriness abounds.”

Washington Post Book World

 

“These stories throw sobriety to the wind…giddily sick…stunning…daring.”

Esquire

 

“Leading contemporary fiction writers from Anne Rice to Martin Amis to Jeanette Winterson contribute first-rank literary stories to this masterful, disturbing collection.”

Publishers Weekly

 

“Dark, funny and frightful, this collection is just the thing for our millennial times.”

John Banville

 

“Haunted, creepy, witty and elegant.”
