Praise for Little and Edward Carey

"A wonderfully weird exploration of spectacles, from wax heads to revolutions, that will delight lovers of the macabre." --BookPage

"Lavishly illustrated with Marie's strange and compelling drawings, Edward Carey's Little is a boldly original reimagining of the life of the woman who would become the legendary Madame Tussaud." --Library Journal, Fall Editors' Pick

"Carey channels the ghosts of Charles Dickens, Henry Fielding, and the Brothers Grimm to tell Marie's tale, populating it with grotesques and horrors worthy of Madame Tussaud's celebrated wax museum... A quirky, compelling story that deepens into a meditation on mortality and art." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"There is nothing ordinary about this book, in which everything animate and inanimate lives, breathes, and remembers. Carey, with sumptuous turns of phrase, fashions a fantastical world that churns with vitality, especially his "Little," a female Candide at once surreal and full of heart." --Publisher's Weekly (starred)

"An immensely creative epic...Mingling a sense of playfulness with macabre history, Carey depicts the excesses of wealth and violence during the French Revolution through the eyes of a talented woman who lived through it and survived...The unique perspective, witty narrative voice, and clever illustrations make for an irresistible read." --Booklist (starred)

"Don't miss this eccentric charmer! Little, by Edward Carey, narrated by Madame Tussaud of waxworks fame, [on] her strange life and times, including the almost fatal French Revolution, a prime season for heads." --Margaret Atwood, on Twitter

"Little is bawdy, tragic, mesmerizing, hilarious. If you've forgotten why you'd even read a novel, Edward Carey is here to set you straight." --Alexander Chee

"Little is exquisitely sensitive to all the warmth, vigor, humor, woe, and peculiarities of human nature, as if the writer had a dowsing rod capable of divining what hides within the human heart. Carey is without peer." --Kelly Link

"A deliciously disturbing treasure of a novel. Sensual, unassumingly poignant, heartbreaking, cruel, joyous: Edward Carey's Little is a triumph and one of the most intoxicating novels I've read. I never wanted to leave Marie's side." --Sarah Schmidt

"An amazing achievement...A compulsively readable novel, so canny and weird and surfeited with the reality of human capacity and ingenuity that I am stymied for comparison. Dickens and David Lynch? Defoe meets Margaret Atwood? Judge for yourself."
--Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked
