Product Details


Advance praise for Serpent Girl

“Carnahan can write. He mixes real freaks with freaky West Coast dopers, gets them talking, threatening each other–and it works. I didn’t notice any wasted words.”
Elmore Leonard

“Smart, sexy, and laugh-out-loud funny. It’s the coolest book I’ve read in years, and in my Top Five of All Time.”
Mike Myers

“It starts with the best opening line in modern American literature and just gets better–and by ‘better’ I mean more depraved and more fun–from there. If you’ve ever wondered what the hell–and by ‘hell’ I mean hell–goes on with a traveling circus when the tents fold and the sawdust is swept up, my babies, this is the show for you.”
John Ridley, author of The Drift and Those Who Walk in Darkness

“Only Matthew Carnahan’s own prose can do him justice–he’s ‘as clear as a bell in a Buddhist temple,’ he’s a ‘vigilant, righteous, in-your-face’ writer, his lines are as ‘ripe and perfectly juicy as Xana’s bruised-mango breasts.’ Oh, never mind–just read the first sentence and hold on to your balls (as if they were ‘dangerous little animals that might escape’) and you’re off!”
Richard Dooling, author of Brain Storm and White Man’s Grave
