The Gargoyle wins Sunburst Award - Fantastic!

Andrew Davidson’s gruesome, beautiful, spellbinding bestseller The Gargoyle has won the 2009 Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. This epic debut novel was a massive hit around the world, when it was first published last year.

The Sunburst jury said: “An unquenchable thirst for story and a phenomenal command of his craft make Andrew Davidson’s The Gargoyle a reader’s dream. This ferociously ambitious, incendiary (at times literally) story of one man’s phoenix-like transformation at the hands of a woman, possibly mad, who claims to have known him for 700 years, is prepared to fall on its own highly charged imaginative sword at any time, but never does. Davidson manages to evoke squirm-inducing horror and abiding love with the same unblinking powers of observation and self-consciousness. As the relationship between narrator and Marianne deepens and her tale of their shared history unfolds, past and present converge in ways tragic and redemptive, and immensely satisfying.”
