"This is a well written and highly topical work on Patrick McGrath's masterly and deft control of the Gothic. It exposes the historical and transnational complexities, contradictions and legacies in the psychology of individuals and nations, expressed through Gothic setting, narrative, location and imagery, revealing McGrath as a versatile writer for monstrous times." -- Gina Wisker, University of Brighton
