Harry Radcliffe is a brilliant prize-winning architect---witty and remarkable. He's also a self-serving opportunist, ready to take advantage of whatever situations, and women, come his way.

Review quote

"If you didn't know that Lewis Carroll was a pseudonym, you might wonder if this Carroll might be a relative. He, too, uses fanciful jests to point up common absurdities and makes fantasy seem altogether tangible."
"Publisher's Weekly" on "Outside the Dog Museum"
"I envy anyone who has yet to enjoy the sexy, eerie and addictive novels of Jonathan Carroll. They are delicious treats--with devilish tricks inside them"
Michael Dirda of the "Washington Post" on "Outside the Dog Museum"
"Jonathan Carroll has the magic. He'll lend you his eyes, and you will never see the world in quite the same way ever again."
---Neil Gaiman
"Carroll's work is unlike any other's. When you start one of his novels or short stories, your every instinct is going to lead you in the wrong direction---sooner rather than later, the book or story is going to turn itself inside out and leave you gasping."
---Peter Straub
"Carroll is one of my heroes. For the freedom he gives himself to crowd his pages with imagined and observed reality, cheek to jowl. For his readiness to be silly right after he's broken your heart. He's really created a unique style---sexy, playful, and mordant all at once."
---Jonathan Lethem
