Reviews

"A totally engaging, intelligently written work . . . this one will linger in one's darkest corners." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"This offbeat novel, reflecting elements of Psycho and Faulkner's A Rose for Emily, draws readers into a macabre world where taboos are lifted and unconventional desires unleashed." --Publishers Weekly

"A shocking, darkly comic tale." --Booklist, Boxed Review

"Eerie. This thought-provoking story about free will and the arguments of nature and nurture will definitely stick with readers." --School Library Journal

"Few other books offer such a combination of stylization verging on the comic and a true fascination with the Gothic's exploration of human minds." --Chicago Tribune

"The wonderful and compelling strangeness will . . . draw many readers, especially fans of silver-screen or classic literary Gothic." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Compelling." --The Horn Book Magazine

"You know where The Love Curse of the Rumbaughs by Jack Gantos is heading, even as you can't quite believe it. . . . Possibly the most oddball children's book ever written and certainly one of the cleverest." --The Telegraph (UK)
