The Wand in the Word

Subject: The Wand in the Word
by Urulöké on 2010/4/25 10:25:40

Has anyone read this book published last October (in paperback, the HC came out in 2006)?

From the publisher: "Leonard S. Marcus's incisive interviews range over questions of literary craft and moral vision as he asks thirteen noted fantasy authors about their pivotal life experiences, their literary influences and work routines, and their beliefs about the place of fantasy in literature and in our lives"

From School Library Journal review: "In the process, he uncovered fascinating revelations about where writers' ideas come from and the themes that the authors deal with. One common thread is homage to J. R. R. Tolkien: Susan Cooper took a class from him; Madeleine L'Engle devoured the three LOTR volumes in as many days; and Ursula LeGuin returns to the novels again and again. However, Philip Pullman can find little in the works now that resonates for him."
