The Good Fairies of New York

The Good Fairies of New York - Martin Millar, Neil Gaiman As soon as I read the opening lines, I knew I would like this book.

"Dinnie, an overweight enemy of humanity, was the worst violinist in New York, but was practicing gamely when two cute little fairies stumbled through his fourth-floor window and vomited on the carpet.
'Sorry,' said one.
'Don't worry,' said the other. 'Fairy vomit is no doubt sweet-smelling to humans.'
By this time, however, Dinnie was halfway down the stairs and still accelerating."

Yes, there are typos. But there are also binge-drinking, magic mushroom eating fairies. And a t.v. channel with nothing but phone sex advertisements.

Oh, I enjoyed this book very much. However, I was left wondering. IS fairy vomit sweet-smelling to humans? That comment is stated a few times throughout the book, but no humans ever remark on whether it is true or not. THEY NEVER LET US KNOW.
