The Land of Laughs

by Jonathan Carroll
Release date: 1980
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy
Tags: prix apollo

For schoolteacher Thomas Abbey there was no writer to equal Marshall France, a legendary author of children's books who hid himself away in the small town of Galen and died of a heart attack at the age of forty-four. Tom and his girlfriend Saxony, wanting to write France's biography, arrive in Galen, where they discover the writer's fiercely protective daughter Anna is waiting for them. Before long, they realise that this idyllic little town and its inhabitants – both human and animal – are not quite what they seem: France's magic has spread beyond the printed page...

The Land of Laughs was a nice and pleasant surprise, when I read it a couple of years ago. It was an interesting and entertaining fantasy book. I can recommend The Land of Laughs to all fantasy fans who like good stories. It's Jonathan Carroll's best book.
