Carpenter’s Gothic by William Gaddis First Printing


Out of stock

Scarce First Printing. Signed by William Gaddis.

Carpenter’s Gothic is the title of the third novel by American writer William Gaddis, published in 1985 by Viking. The title connotes a “Gothic” tale of haunted isolation, in a milieu stripped of all pretensions.

Gaddis’s second-shortest novel, Carpenter’s Gothic relates the words and occasional actions, in one house, of an ex-soldier, confederate apologist, and pathological liar; his neglected and ineffectual wife; and a visitor with a mysterious past who resembles in many ways Gaddis himself.
