Sharp Teeth, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

An ancient race of lycanthropes survives in modern L.A. and its numbers are growing as packs convert the city's downtrodden into their fold.

Stuck in the middle are a local dogcatcher and the woman he loves, whose secret past haunts her as she fights a bloody one-woman battle to save their relationship.

Sharp Teeth is a novel-in-verse that blends epic themes with dark humour, dogs playing cards, crystal meth labs, and acts of heartache and betrayal in Southern California.

I found the concept of this book an interesting one, and thought that Barlow carried it off very well. The poetry was at times harrowing, and at other points very tender. I thought the story was weaved together nicely, and the poetic brevity of the lines made the images of brutality more incisive than they might otherwise have been in prose. I commend the willingness of Barlow to try something different and he succeeds admirably in my opinion.
