Description

Francesca Lia Block's luminous, postmodern fairy tales chronicle the thin line between fear and desire, pain and pleasure, cutting loose and holding on in a world where everyone is vulnerable to the most beautiful and dangerous angel of all: love.



Praise For Dangerous Angels

“A poetic series of books celebrating love, art, and the imagination, all in hyper-lyrical language.”
-Spin

“Magic is everywhere in Block’s lyrical and resonant fables. At once modern and mythic, her series deserves as much space as it can command of daydream nation’s shrinking bookshelves.”
-Village Voice

“Transcendent.”
-New York Times Book Review

“Ms. Block’s far-ranging free association has been controlled and shaped...with sensual characters. The language is inventive Californian hip, but the patterns are compactly folkloristic and the theme is transcendent.”
-New York Times Book Review
