Sam and his friends are like any normal gang of normal young boys. Roaming wild around the outskirts of their car-factory town. Daring adults to challenge their freedom.
Until the day Sam wakes to find the Tooth Fairy sitting on the edge of his bed. Not the benign figure of childhood myth, but an enigmatic presence that both torments and seduces him, changing his life forever.
Praise For The Tooth Fairy…
"Brilliantly original." -Sunday Times (London)
"An unforgettable story set in the strange and foreign land that is your own childhood-that place where splendor and horror, memory and fantasy, collide. You'll be turning the pages and wishing you could go on doing so long after the book has ended. A magnificent achievement." -Karen Joy Fowler
"Brilliant and unclassifiable, The Tooth Fairy is by turns tender, nightmarish, and hilarious, with hard-won wisdom and a rare sense of time and place, of lives truly lived....I won't bother saying Graham Joyce deserves to find a wide audience in America; rather, I think the American audience deserves to discover him." -Jonathan Lethem
