The Turner House
The Turners have lived in the same house for over 50 years—a remarkable feat considering the house is in the embattled city of Detroit, surrounded by vacant lots and worth just a tenth of its mortgage. Find out what happens to the house and the offspring brought up in it

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a difficult book to categorize - part travel literature, a bit gothic, a bit of an eccentric novel of manners. It begins with the development of the evil character of Zeluco, who could become the archetype of the gothic villain. But toward the end of the novel are the descriptions of a series of type characters, the most amusing of which are Scottish, like the author. It is a long novel, but well worth pursuing. It has much influence on contemporary authors.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Edward Yarborough on December 20, 2013
Format: Paperback
In one of his letters Edward Gibbon praises "Zeluco" as the finest philosophical novel of the age. Really? The characters tend to be rather superficial, and what philosophy there may be is heavy-handed. Gibbon also wrote that Richardson's "Sir Charles Grandison" was superior to the same author's "Clarissa," an opinion no one else has ever shared; I guess Gibbon knew more about history than he did about fiction.
