The Shambling Guide to New York City Summary


The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty

"Wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" - James Lovegrove, The Financial Times

COULD YOU FIND A HOTEL FOR A HARPY? OR A BAR FOR A BIGFOOT?

Following the disaster that was her last job, Zoe is searching for a fresh start as a travel writer in New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position, though, Zoe is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can't take off her resume - human.

Not to be put off by anything - especially not her blood-drinking boss or death goddess co-worker - Zoe delves deep into the monster world. But her assignments turn deadly when the careful balance between humans and monsters starts to crumble with Zoe right in the middle.

"If Buffy grew up, got therapy and found a real job, it would look like this." - Scott Sigler

"Shows exactly why so many writers have been buzzing about Mur Lafferty for so many years: an unbeatable mixture of humor, heart, imagination, and characterization. I want to live in Mur's New York." - Cory Doctorow

"Lafferty's novel has wit, style and plenty of sardonic dialogue, like Douglas Adams writing an episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" - James Lovegrove, The Financial Times

"THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY is a high-concept, high-comedy romp through the supernatural underworld. It's like nothing you've ever read before - and that's a good thing." - Seanan McGuire (aka Mira Grant, author of FEED)

"A wild ride through the secret side of New York City, Mur Lafferty's mighty debut is urban fantasy the way it should be: fast, funny, with bags of action and characters you'll love. A total delight from cover to cover." - Adam Christopher, author of EMPIRE STATE

"Without Mur Lafferty, the SF genre would be a much duller place." - Paul Cornell
