Description

The Fairy Tale Museum is an alchemical curiosity-cabinet-as-novel that showcases the original, spectacular, grotesque, endearing, and otherworldly. You’ll meet bird-headed lovers, a cyborg cyclops, a fortune teller, revolutionary ventriloquists’ dummies, a narcoleptic vampire, Eros and Thanatos, and a host of woodland creatures. A celebration of creativity and transformation, this book is a manifesto against putting ourselves into boxes that limit who we can be and what is possible.

Editorial Reviews

“A dream within a dream within a book. A wonderland-like journey through magic and imagination. I’m running out of ways to describe this book, in part because it defies description. If you like dark fairy tales, you’ll probably like this.”—McNally Robinson Staff Pick 

— McNally Robinson Staff Pick

“In Susannah M. Smith’s fantastical, moody folkloric menagerie, you can wander slowly and savour, or leap randomly between surprising exhibits. Part Brothers Grimm and part Doktor Bey, part novel and part poem, The Fairy Tale Museum is a moving, exquisite sensory experience. This is an exciting book.”—Stuart Ross

— Stuart Ross

“In The Fairy Tale Museum, Susannah M. Smith has crafted a world as seemingly scenic and romantic as a snow globe—except this world can break, it can draw blood, and it can transform. This is a beautiful book, its beauty only deepened by its bite.”—Derek McCormack

— Derek McCormack

The Fairy Tale Museum is a beautifully written book of short prose invites the reader to relax and explore the curated ‘collections’ of pieces. It is a book you can, like a museum, come back to again and again and discover something new each time.”—Prairie Fire Review of Books
