"When you're tired of run-of-the-mill fiction, it's time to read [Tim Davys]."
--Brad Meltzer, author of The Book of Lies

"A world that's violent, tender, hilarious, and downright sickening. Really, what could be better?"
--Eric Garcia, author of Anonymous Rex

Tim Davys is one of the most uniquely imaginative novelists writing today--the architect of Mollisan Town, a dark urban nightmare located in an alternate world populated by stuffed animals that lie, cheat, dream, despair, love, and kill. In the final installment in his acclaimed Mollisan Town Quartet, Davys leads us into Yok, a district of dashed hopes and broken dreams--the seediest neighborhood of "a unique place that is both strange and familiar" (Boston Globe)--and employs an engaging cast of damaged animate plush toys to explore provocative questions of life, death, and morality. Yok is nourishment for readers hungry for off-beat, literary fiction, and fans of Christopher Moore, Neil Gaiman, Clifford Chase, and Jasper Fforde will be inexorably drawn into Davys' ingeniously sculpted world.

Review:

""Yok " feels both clever and genuinely moving... A delicious read."--Boston Globe

"Yok " feels both clever and genuinely moving... A delicious read. --Boston Globe"

"Yok feels both clever and genuinely moving... A delicious read."--Boston Globe

From the Back Cover:

In Yok, Mollisan Town's seediest neighborhood, Fox Antonio Ortega, Erik Gecko, Mike Chimpanzee, and Vincent Hare are trapped by ignorance, poverty, mediocrity, and their own insecurities. Yet there is a glimmer of hope, a chance that they can overcome their desperate circumstances and gain the freedom to achieve their dreams. The handsome fox yearns for true love; the gecko seeks redemption and freedom from his abusive brothers; the chimpanzee burns for success; and the hare seeks the secret to a meaningful life. But when they get close to their desires, will happiness slip out of reach, or can they find the power to grab what they want?

Mollisan Town is unlike any world ever created in literature. Within its colorful streets dwell the desires, dark sides, hopes, and expectations of its plush inhabitants. From romance to ambition, jealousy to despair, the stuffed animals of Yok must grapple with the most human of emotions. The tension mounts within these four gripping tales, and each character's journey leads to a truth that reveals something about the animals of this alternate world--and about ourselves.
