EARLY HYPE: The Gargoyle Hunters was chosen as a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Pick and was a Booklist Best New Adult Fiction Pick. Early praise has been effusive, from Colum McCann, Annie Proulx, and Gretchen Rubin, among others.
CRITICAL ACCLAIM: In The Washington Post, Ron Charles called it “unabashedly charming” and “coiled with life.”
ALL AGES: This is the story of a young boy’s adolescence, a novel of 1970s New York, and a meditation on architecture and gentrification. The Gargoyle Hunters is a novel that parents who remember New York in the 70s can share with their teenage children.
DEEP RESEARCH: In addition to being a gripping novel, the historical and architectural detail on display—Freeman Gill has written extensively on architecture—is well-researched and educational.
Praise for The Gargoyle Hunters:
“Quirky…. Fun…. Fantastic…. Unabashedly charming…. Coiled with life…. After a few chapters…it’s impossible not to turn your gaze toward the sky.”—Ron Charles, The Washington Post
“Gill, who’s written often on New York’s architectural history, understands buildings from wrought-iron panels to terra cotta sculptures, which makes for some detailed and engaging set pieces, like the pair’s death-defying, dark-of-night effort to remove a gargoyle from the top of the Woolworth Building or Griffin’s exploring the innards of the Statue of Liberty with a romantic interest.”—Kirkus Reviews
