The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson (novel)

The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson: This is the fictional story of a drug addicted porn star who is in a terrible car accident which leaves him severely burned over most of his body. While he is in the hospital for several months following his accident, a mysterious woman begins visiting him and telling him wild stories from medieval times. Intertwined in these stories is the supposed story of their past life together as lovers. Highly implausible, but an excellent read nonetheless; I really enjoyed this book. The narrator (the burn victim/ex-porn star) is likeable in spite of himself; he starts out as a cynical, selfish, shallow person (whom you still can't help but like), and grows into a deeper, more accepting person through the book.

This is a hardcover and is up for grabs. First come, first served.
