About The Book

The book successfully discusses Brown's seven novels, including all other significant material, focusing on the subgenres of the Gothic, arguing that Brown is of significant value in the study of Gothic literature, and that his work remains important today.


"Weinstock's study offers a quick, readable introduction to Brown's major novels, his intellectual biography, and his influences, situated in reference to the most critically significant studies of Brown's work, past and present... Recommended."--A. T. Hale, University of Puget Sound "Choice " Throughout the study, Weinstock's prose is lucid and entertaining, and his research is wide-ranging and generally solid...Weinstock's breadth as a scholar of early American literature, of Gothic and pop culture (film particularly), and his writing style, which is lucid and not dependent on jargon, make this book widely accessible. - Michael Cody, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
