MEDIA REVIEWS

." . . a scholarly overview of the role that fairies have played in culture from the past to the present."
-Publishers Weekly


"Illuminating and enormous fun."
-Spectator


"At the Bottom of the Garden is brilliant, always on the move, and bone-chilling. There's nothing cutesy about this highly suggestive, provocative scholarship; the creatures animating this book are about as cuddly as scorpions, wee rattlers, and black-widow spiders. Purkiss has written a witty and compelling work that will fascinate readers and haunt our imaginations."
-James Kincaid, University of Southern California, author of Erotic Innocence


"Fascinating. . . . Rigorously researched. . . . Highly recommended."
-Choice(Nov. 2001)


"Enchanting . . . witty . . . full of surprises and delights."
-The Times
