MEDIA 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)
