His previous novel, AFTER SILENCE, placed this gifted and award-winning writer squarely in the mainstream. The San Francisco Chronicle raved, ‘AFTER SILENCE is filled with people who feel as real as one’s closest friends, observed with a penetrating, and sometimes brutally chilling, clarity. a taut, original work whose excellence fulfills the promises made by this remarkable author over the last dozen years.’ In FROM THE TEETH OF ANGELS, Jonathan Carroll returns to that unique literary landscape that he paves with magic and wonder. While vacationing in Sardinia, Ian McGann meets Death in a dream. Death promises to answer any of McGann’s questions, but if he fails to understand the answers, he will have to pay with his life. In Los Angeles, successful film actress Arlen Ford is no longer happy living in the Hollywood fast lane. She gives up everything - her career, her house, her glamorous lifestyle - and moves to Austria, where she meets a passionate war correspondent. From the start, their relationship is all-consuming. Arlen realizes she has been waiting for this man all her life. And in Vienna, the terminally ill Wyatt Leonard suddenly discovers that he has the ability to raise the dead. How all three of these extraordinary fates converge is at the heart of Jonathan Carroll’s most daring and provocative novel, in which he dares to ask - and answer - the ultimate question: What is Death?.
