The Good Fairies of New York

Copertina anteriore
Soft Skull Press, 8 set 2006 - 256 pagine
The Good Fairies of New York tells the fish-out-of-water story of two Scottish thistle fairies who find themselves in Manhattan. The fairies hook up with two humans, Kerry (complete with colostomy bag) and Dinnie (antisocial in the extreme), finding time to help both get their acts together. A book that brings together race riots and Scottish folklore, The Good Fairies of New York is anything but a typical fairy fantasy.

Recensione dell'utente  - SESchend - LibraryThing

Very silly, irreverent fun fantasy in New York City with drunken Scottish faeries playing punk music on their fiddles. If that can't sell you on reading this, I don't know what will. Leggi recensione completa

I was pleasantly surprised by this book and I enjoyed it a lot more than some of the Neil Gaiman books I've read (sorry!). The humor is sharp and the characters are realistic and well-developed ... Leggi recensione completa

Informazioni sull'autore (2006)

Martin Millar was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but has lived in London, England, for a long time. He has written a lot of things — novels and plays and short stories and articles. His new novel is Suzy, Led Zeppelin and Me, and it's set in Glasgow. Millar has written six other novels — Love and Peace with Melody Paradise; Milk, Sulphate and Alby Starvation; Lux the Poet; The Good Fairies of New York; Dreams of Sex and Stage Diving and Ruby & The Stone Age Diet.

Martin Millar likes Jane Austen novels, and wrote a stage play of Emma. He even wrote the novelisation of the Tank Girl movie.

Last, but not least, as Martin Scott, Millar writes the Thraxas series of books. There are five so far, and he won the World Fantasy Award for the first one.

When he's not writing, Millar likes to watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer, read history books, especially if they're about ancient Greece, and play the flute.
