Have you ever loved a magical book above all others? Have you ever wished the magic were real? Welcome to The Land of Laughs. A novel about how terrifying that would be. Schoolteacher Thomas Abbey, unsure son of a film star, doesn't know who he is or what he wants--in life, in love, or in his relationship with the strange and intense Saxony Gardner. What he knows is that in his whole life nothing has touched him so deeply as the novels of Marshall France, a reclusive author of fabulous children's tales who died at forty-four. Now Thomas and Saxony have come to France's hometown, the dreamy Midwestern town of Galen, Missouri, to write France's biography. Warned in advance that France's family may oppose them, they're surprised to find France's daughter warmly welcoming instead. But slowly they begin to see that something fantastic and horrible is happening. The magic of Marshall France has extended far beyond the printed page...leaving them with a terrifying task to undertake.

Jonathan Carroll was born in 1949 in Dobbs Ferry, New York, to two artistic parents, Sidney Carroll, a screenwriter whose film credits include The Hustler, starring Paul Newman, and June Carroll, an actress and lyricist. The family migrated between the east and west coasts, while Carroll was growing up, finally enrolling him in a boarding school in Connecticut. He developed an interest in writing while in high school and graduated cum laude from Rutgers University. He next pursued a master's degree in creative writing at the University of Virginia. Carroll's first novel, Land of the Laughs, was published in 1980 and was followed by Voice of Our Shadow. His novels are difficult to classify into one genre. The novels are full of fantasy and imagination, yet remain profound. His work inspires cult followings and is especially popular in France and Germany. An expatriate since the 1970s, Carroll lives in Vienna.
