Summary :

Gormenghast is the vast crumbling castle to which the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, is Lord and heir. Gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old ritual, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, manipulation and murder in a world suggested in a tour de force that ranks as one of this century's most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.

Blurbs:
  • "Like any true work of the imagination, these novels will support any interpretation. Call them fable, fairy tale, nightmare. Their range is limitless. They are, in short, a triumph. The author's inventiveness does not falter; he retains mastery of theme and story despite the more than thirteen years of writing involved. An eccentric, poetic masterpiece." The National Observer
