"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
