Praise for Such Sharp Teeth
“Rachel Harrison’s feminist horror novels are some of the most original and entertaining out there.” –The New York Times
“Darkly comic and modern…a story about rage, trauma and leaning into one’s wild side.” –USA Today
“Wonderfully witty and wild. It’s also heady and daring in how the story explores friend and family dynamics, the anger women aren’t allowed to express within our culture, and the wounds that transform us against our will. The next full moon I see, I’ll be rooting for Rory.” –Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World and The Pallbearers Club
“No one is writing horror that explores the intricacies of femininity like Rachel Harrison. This brilliant story is about accepting your identity, your past, love, friendship, and family… all wrapped up in a deeply satisfying and scary monster tale. Such Sharp Teeth is as irresistible as the pull of the full moon—I couldn’t tear myself away.” –Mallory O’Meara, bestselling author of The Lady From the Black Lagoon
