BIBY 2009

Annika Arting from the Faroe Islands convinced the participants of ICYB 2009 with her candidate for the Booksellers´ International Book of the Year: The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson!

An extraordinary debut novel of love that survives the fires of hell and transcends the boundaries of time.
The narrator of The Gargoyle is a very contemporary cynic, physically beautiful and sexually adept, who dwells in the moral vacuum that is modern life. As the book opens, he is driving along a dark road when he is distracted by what seems to be a flight of arrows. He crashes into a ravine and suffers horrible burns over much of his body. As he recovers in a burn ward, undergoing the tortures of the damned, he awaits the day when he can leave the hospital and commit carefully planned suicide—for he is now a monster in appearance as well as in soul…

All international publishers who are interested in this award are more than welcome to contact ICYB President Susanne Meinel at meinel@buchnrw.de.
