Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
G. Brown and 10 other people liked Bill Hsu's review of Piranesi:
Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
"I was cautiously optimistic when I found out about this. Will this be another Strange/Norrell, or a throwaway like Grace Adieu? (Turns out it's neither.) I'm a big Piranesi fan, but I'm also wary of a novel that trumpets his name so proudly upfront. " Read more of this review »

Jason "Once upon a time a guy came home and found his girlfriend screwing a gnome. But it was okay because the guy was also a gnome and he high fived the other gnome and they had a gnome three-way and just kept chanting "gnome, gnome, gnome." It was pretty rad."

Best Gnome story ever.
