The Good Fairies Of New York
Needed a break from YA books and was browsing through a bookstore in Santa Barbara when I found this. I know, it’s about fairies. But, trust me, it’s an adult novel. Although plenty of teens would read it. Anyways, Neil Gaiman wrote the introduction, so I had to read it. I’ll let you know what I think about it.
When a pair of fugitive Scottish thistle fairies end up transplanted to Manhattan by mistake, both the Big Apple and the Little People have a lot of adjusting to do. Heather and Morag just want to start the first radical fairy punk rock band, but first they’ll have make a match between two highly unlikely sweethearts, start a street brawl between rival gangs of Italian, Chinese, and African fairies, help the ghost of a dead rocker track down his lost guitar, reclaim a rare triple-bloomed Welsh poppy from a bag lady with delusions of grandeur, disrupt a local community performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and somehow manage to stay sober enough to save all of New York from an invasion of evil Cornish fairies.
If they can stop feuding with each other, that is.
A racy and irreverent novel by Martin Millar, winner of the World Fantasy Award.
