From the author of Sharp Teeth, comes a novel of postwar Paris, of star-crossed love and Cold War espionage, of bloodthirsty witches and a police inspector turned into a flea...and that's just the beginning. But while Toby Barlow's Babayaga may start as just a joyful love-letter to the City of Light, it quickly grows into a daring, moving exploration of love, mortality, and responsibility.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Spies and witches; sex and Kafka; boomtown Detroit and postwar Paris... Toby Barlow is a warlock. Babayaga is his potion. Drink up -- Robin Sloan
Eye of newt and toe of frog, wit and heart and mordant social commentary: this dark, delicious brew from Toby Barlow has it all -- Hillary Jordan
Tolkien meets Graham Greene meets Anne Rice * New York Magazine *
Babayaga works magic to make 'the impossible possible'... Toby Barlow's adept combination of unexpected genres conjures a tale of witches, the CIA and a detective-turned-flea in 1950s Paris... Bewitching * Los Angeles Times *
Delivers a helluva good time, a delicious mash-up of Cold War spy thriller, horror novel, and love story... It's witty and charming and exceedingly light on its feet... The novel is really something out of the ordinary * Booklist *
Tremendous... As ambitious as any literary novel, because underneath all that fur, it's about identity, community, love, death, and all the things we want our books to be about -- Nick Hornby on SHARP TEETH
