“An unholy landmark of a novel–an extra turret added on to the ample, ingenious, audacious Gothic mansion Gaddis has been building in American letters”—Cynthia Ozick, The New York Times Book Review

“Everything in this compelling and brilliant vision of America–the packaged sleaze, the incipient violence, the fundamentalist furor, the constricted sexuality–is charged with the force of a volcanic eruption. Carpenter’s Gothic will reenergize and give shape to contemporary literature.”—Walter Abish
