Sharp Teeth

ebook

"Barlow's imagery is magnificent . . . [A] kooky combo of grit, goofiness, and gusto . . . demonstrates that fantasy . . . may just be the place to find true exuberance and stylistic innovation." — Los Angeles Times Book Review

An ancient race of lycanthropes has survived to the present day, and its numbers are growing as the initiated convince L.A.'s down and out to join their pack. Caught in the middle are Anthony, a kind-hearted, besotted dogcatcher, and the girl he loves, a female werewolf who has abandoned her pack.

Blending dark humor and epic themes with card-playing dogs, crystal meth labs, surfing, and carne asada tacos, Sharp Teeth captures the pace and feel of a graphic novel while remaining "as ambitious as any literary novel, because underneath all that fur, it's about identity, community, love, death, and all the things we want our books to be about" [Nick Hornby, The Believer].
