"Review" by , "Superb....Asylum is McGrath's most somber and most realistic book, and also his best."
"Review" by , "In every other respect...the book is hypnotizing, with its own strange but darkly convincing pace and style; and the way in which nature and climate are woven into the fabric of the bizarre couple's strange love is masterly."
"Review" by , "A contemporary master of highbrow gothic fiction....[A] truly complex (but never obscure) novel. McGrath, always a worthy descendant of Poe, here takes things a level higher — producing fiction in the tradition of Henry James."
"Review" by , "A virtuoso of contrast, McGrath wields a cleverly modernized form of Victorianism, precise and stately, to render scenes of unsettling and suspenseful eroticism..."
"Review" by , "[S]tylish...should only add to [McGrath's] reputation as the leader of the neo-Gothic pack....[O]utrageously fun. Smart, frightening, funny and surprisingly affecting, McGrath's latest elevates the psychiatric case-study to high art."
"Review" by , "Taut, tension-filled...a chilling story that works as both a Freudian parable and an old-fashioned gothic shocker."
"Review" by , "Beautifully written, morally complex, utterly convincing."
"Review" by , "A book as absorbing as it is intelligent....The story of this love affair unfolds like a dream into a nightmare — the characters move relentlessly toward their tragic end with desire raging like a fire, gathering strength and destroying everything and everyone in it spath."
"Synopsis" by , Soon to be a major motion picture starring Ian McKellen (Gods and Monsters), Natasha Richardson (The Handmaid's Tale), and Marton Csokas (The Bourne Supremacy), with a screenplay adaptation by Patrick Marber (Closer).
