--Neil Gaiman

Format: Taschenbuch
I'm amazed Carroll hasn't taken off in the US. Most of his earlier works are out of print, which is a shame. He's one of of the most talented authors I've read. Some books have a couple of great lines that really stand out, with Carroll you get that every other page. The man is amazing in his ability to capture the moment between 2 people.
Most of his novels revolve a particular set of folkswhose orbits are somehow tied together. If you like this book I'd suggest Bones of the Moon and Outside the Dog Museum (if you can find them.) Just beware, his books are addicting!
Carroll is a true craftsman of his art.

It's one of the great publishing mysteries why Jonathan Carroll isn't among the most popular novelists in the world. I've just scanned Amazon for the availability of his novels, only to find that most of them are out of print. Carroll is a most uncommon writer: his stories are deep, brooding, and grotesque, and yet are told with an easy-going charm that makes them almost impossible to put down. "Sleeping in Flame" adheres to the common Carroll formula: draw the reader in with an engaging opening conflict, bring on the cast of charismatic eccentrics, weave in a convincing and involving romance, and then, just as the readers are lulled by all of this, drop the floor out from under them and plunge them into a world of chilling, grotesque fantasy. I'm not giving anything away when I say that "Sleeping in Flame" is a rather unique spin on the story of Rumpelstilskin. How he introduces the elements of that story, and where he takes it, are so original and fascinating, you'll never think of Rumpelstilskin the same way again. I recommend this book, but I think you'd be better served by telling Amazon to hunt down copies of "Child Across the Sky" or "Land of Laughs," his two greatest novels. My copies are British editions -- I have no idea whether they even had US versions. Even though Carroll is from the US (his dad was the co-screenwriter for "The Hustler") he lives in Vienna and his audience is mostly European.
If your problem with American fiction is that it's too mundane and convential (which it is, oppressively so), or that the novelists with the greatest imaginations are ensnared by genre formulas (which they are), Jonathan Carroll is the answer to your prayers. His wild imagination, compelling characters, and his great narrative voice are unique, and he deserves a huge audience.

The first time I was introduced to this book was by an English professor of mine in college. Ususual for most college level classes, the book list for the semester consisted of only three novels: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, and this book. Read these novels together, they make for such an alluring and profound literary trio.

Von Jessica (tellarren@yahoo.com) am 27. Oktober 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the most original, unusual, eccentric, competent books I have ever read. It's so unusual and different that one almost can't believe that the book comes out as well put-together and nicely crafted as it does. The novel succeeds at being extremely odd while reading like mainstream fiction. How does Carroll do it?
It's really too bad that Carroll's stuff is so hard to find; I searched for this book for six years before finding it, believe it or not. Carroll has such an individual voice, is so original, that all of his stuff should be readily available.
The only problems I have with this book are the plot's leapfrogs from one style of novel to another; when I read the book, I felt like I was reading several stories at once. While it is usually good to have different themes running together at once, somehow this novel didn't come off as one book with many themes, or even many books with their own themes, but as all kinds of authors and ideas taking hold of the novel at different times. You've got a little Richard Bach there for a while, then some brothers Grimm, then some Tanith Lee, all with a Milan Kundera-type voice. Very strange. Plus, the ending is so abrupt, I found myself wondering if perhaps I'd lost a page or two.
However, the book is well-written enough and entertaining enough and literary enough to go beyond its bizarre literary flightiness, and what comes out is a masterful, wonderful, classic novel. I highly recommend it.

Von Ein Kunde am 14. Dezember 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
By now, I have read a few of Carroll's novels and have always found them either not particularly good or terrific (luckily, I started with one from the latter category). This is definitely one of his great books. The characters are slowly developed and interesting. This by itself would already suffice to make this a good book, but then suddenly the typical Carroll turn takes you straight into fairy-tale country with an extremely unpleasant old man (who is, by the way, quite reluctant to tell his name). You should be prepared that by the time you get to this point of the story you will NOT put the book down anymore. After the rather quiet first part of the book, you are now kept on the edge of your seat with new twists and turns to the story on every page. A wonderful book! If you don't know Carroll yet, start with this one. If you already do, this is Carroll at his best!
