: the mesmerizing story of one man's descent into personal hell and his quest for salvation. On a dark road in the middle of the night, a car plunges into a ravine. The driver survives the crash, but his injuries confine him to a hospital burn unit. There the mysterious Marianne Engel, a sculptress of grotesques, enters his life. She insists they were lovers in medieval Germany, when he was a mercenary and she was a scribe in the monastery of Engelthal. As she spins the story of their past lives together, the man's disbelief falters; soon, even the impossible can no longer be dismissed.

Amazon.­com ReviewProduct Description 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. A beautiful and compelling, but clearly unhinged, sculptress of gargoyles by the name of Marianne Engel appears at the foot of his bed and insists that they were once lovers in medieval Germany. In her telling, he was a badly injured mercenary and she was a nun and scribe in the famed monastery . . .

A mysterious creature stalks the land, eating barbed wire and devouring tractors and plows. The farmers are mystified - and afraid.­And then they glimpse him in the night: the Iron Giant, taller than a house, with glowing headlight eyes and an insatiable taste for metal. Where has he come from? Nobody knows. How was he made? Nobody knows. What they do know is that the Iron Giant must be stopped.­But the real threat hovers above, darkening the sky with its scaly wings: a space-­bat as big as Australia, hungry for every living thing it sees. And suddenly, the world needs a hero - a giant hero - like never before...­First published in 1968, Ted Hughes's classic tale is a powerful tribute to peace on earth - and in all the universe.­From the Hardcover edition.

"Voðinn situr um þá óviðbúnu, stundum hamslaus, rétt eins og ástin.­"

Á myrkum vegi um miðja nótt hrapar bifreið í gljúfur. Illa brenndur sleppur ökumaðurinn lifandi frá slysinu. Hann þolir óbærilegar kvalir og sársaukafulla meðferð á sjúkrahúsinu í þeirri einu von að verða nægilega hraustur til þess að fremja sjálfsmorð.

Þá birtist hin leyndardómsfulla Marianne Engel myndhöggvari. Hún fullyrðir að þau séu elskendur frá fyrra lífi, í Þýskalandi á miðöldum. Hann málaliði og leiguþý og hún skrifari og nunna í klaustrinu Engelthal.

Marianne segir ævintýraríkar sögur frá fyrra lífi þeirra, m.­a. frá Íslandi og Japan. Því meira sem þær fléttast saman, sljóvgast ruddaskapur hans og vantrú - brátt neyðist hann til þess að trúa hinu ótrúlega.

Steindrekinn er villt og fallegt ferðalag sem spannar heimsálfur og aldir. Heillandi saga sem fær lesandann til að trúa á kraftaverk, ást og eilífan mátt frásagnarlistarinnar. Þegar lestri bókarinnar er lokið áttu þá ósk heitasta að lesa . . .
