Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Castle by J. Robert Lennon
 
Castle tells a terrific story, dire and confusing and convincing.” —Scott Bradfield, The New York Times Book Review

Eric Loesch, a private man with a shadowy past, returns to his hometown in rural New York, where he purchases a dilapidated house that he begins to renovate with steely determination. The adjacent woods on his property seem to beckon him, and he soon discovers a Gothic castle at the center of his land that he appears not to own. Loesch looks for an explanation, and the reader is drawn into a “terrifying and psychologically complex mystery signaling an important American writer in full command of his powers.”*

Synopsis:

In this contemporary novel about memory, guilt, power, and violence, a returning resident in a small upstate New York town sets out to explore a forbidding and almost impenetrable forest--lifeless, it seems, but for a bewitching white deer--that is the site of an 18th-century Indian massacre.
