Dangerous Angels: Five Weetzie Bat Books

Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

The Weetzie Bat series, by acclaimed author Francesca Lia Block, was listed among NPR's 100 Best-Ever Teen Novels. This collection brings together all five luminous novels of the series in one paperback.

Spinning a saga of interwoven lives and beating hearts, these postmodern fairy tales take us to a Los Angeles brimming with magical realism: a place where life is a mystery, pain can lead to poetry, strangers become intertwined souls, and everyone is searching for the most beautiful and dangerous angel of all: love.

The Weetzie Bat books broke new ground with their stylized, lyrical prose and unflinching look at the inner life of teens. The New York Times declared Dangerous Angels was transcendent. And the Village Voice proclaimed Ms. Block writes for the young adult in all of us.

Includes Weetzie Bat, Witch Baby, Cherokee Bat and the Goat Guys, Missing Angel Juan, and Baby Be-Bop.

Reviews

"Ms. Block's far-ranging free association has been controlled and shaped...with sensual characters. The language is inventive Californian hip, but the patterns are compactly folkloristic and the theme is transcendent."--New York Times Book Review
"Transcendent."--New York Times Book Review
"A poetic series of books celebrating love, art, and the imagination, all in hyper-lyrical language."--Spin
"Magic is everywhere in Block's lyrical and resonant fables. At once modern and mythic, her series deserves as much space as it can command of daydream nation's shrinking bookshelves."--Village Voice
