An odd little fairy book. Some Scottish Faeries travel to New York to escape the tyrant king's forces. Once in NY, they split up: one group manages to affront most of the NY faeries, while two friends wind up with different humans (one, a dreamy young woman with a colostomy bag who wants to play guitar as good as Johnny Thunders, and the other a young slacker guy). There's a flower they must find for complicated reasons, and a nearly unending series of coincidences, victories turned to defeat, and various characters coming into each other's orbit then departing.
Meanwhile, the guerrila war against the tyrant King back home carries on...but then the rebel leader falls in love with the King's daughter.

Inventive, told simply, and certainly not for the kids.
