This is a book not easily spoken of. To call it historical fiction is entirely out-of-place, and yet to call it fantasy is to lump it with many books which cannot live to the scope of this one. Clark's attention to minute detail and knowledge of hist ...more

A neat little book that I first read in my History of the Book course, and then had to pick up my own copy. Well, two, actually. They were Christmas gifts, and look rather nice next to each other on the shelf.
