The Wooden SeaBook - 2001
Ever since the publication of his first novel, The Land of Laughs, Jonathan Carroll has been delighting readers with his memorable characters and his overflowing imagination. Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Ruth Rendell, and Pat Conroy have all praised his work over the years. He creates worlds just around the corner from our own everyday lives, where the dead return, where your best friend is transformed into something not human, where you can meet earlier -- and later -- versions of yourself.The Wooden Sea, Carroll's most ambitious and visionary work to date, is populated with finely etched characters and conveys an edgy sense of wonder. From the moment a three-legged dog limps into the comfortable life of Crane's View Police Chief Frannie McCabe and drops dead at his feet, McCabe's life is forever altered. The decisions McCabe will make over the next week will have enormous impact on his life -- and on the fate of the world as well.A rich stew of intrigue, wonder, and redemption, The Wooden Sea is Jonathan Carroll's finest novel to date. It confirms his place as one of the major fantasists of his generation.
