"A wily thriller-fantasy . . . Each discovery sounds like the voice of a storyteller reminding us of how the gods play with our fates.""New York Times" Winner of the Finlandia Award, "Troll: A Love Story" is an enchanting novel that has become an international sensation. Angel, a young photographer, comes home from a night of carousing to find a group of drunken teenagers in the courtyard of his apartment building, taunting a wounded, helpless young troll. He takes it in, not suspecting the dramatic consequences of this decision. What does one do with a troll in the city? As the troll's presence influences Angel's life in ways he could never have predicted, it becomes clear that the creature is the familiar of man's most forbidden feelings. A novel of sparkling originality, "Troll" is a wry, beguiling story of nature and man's relationship to wild things, and of the dark power of the wildness in ourselves."show more

Review quote

"The comedy is irresistible, the pages tum themselves, carried along by the quicksilver of an unbelievably imaginative pen.... Run to this book.... An entertaining variation on the eternal confrontation between man and beast, the light and dark angels which live in all of us."show more
