From the Publisher:

I finished this book and was so knocked out by it that I turned right back to the first page and started it all over again!

Eileen Gaffney, Associate Managing Editor

From the Back Cover:

"An utterly original, groundbreaking book . . . A work of art."
--Chicago Tribune

"SOME WRITERS CREATE INDELIBLE WORLDS in a manner that is at once fervent and languorous. . . . The sheer confidence of their vision blinds the reader in a vivid dream. Karen Joy Fowler's Sarah Canary creates that feeling of radiant strangeness. . . . It is ostensibly an account of the adventures of a Chinese railway worker and a special drifter in a long black dress. But Ms. Fowler's willingness to take detours, her unapologetic delight in the odd historical fact, her shadowy humor and the elegant unruliness of her language, all elevate her story from the picaresque to the grand."
--The New York Times Book Review

"UNFORGETTABLE . . . INCANDESCENT . . . BEWITCHING."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"POWERFULLY IMAGINED . . . Drop everything and follow Sarah Canary. . . . Humor and horror, history and myth dance cheek to cheek in this Jack London meets L. Frank Baum world. . . . Here is a work that manages to be at the same time (and often in the same sentence) dark and deep and fun."
--The Washington Post Book World

"UNEXPECTEDLY MOVING."
--The New Yorker
