Chris asked:

Eleonora has a favorite series of books entitled The Lighthouse. No mention of the author. Is this a real series?" If so, who is the author? I tried to look it up on Goodreads but there are about 19 pages of books with Lighthouse in the title. Thank you.

Dan No, her favorite series of books is called "The Hourglass."

The author has said that he invented that series. It does not really exist. He was quoted on a blog:

"It’s invented. And it is one of my favorite parts of the novel. There’s something so magical about a piece of art that exists only within a piece of art. Works like that have a magic hologram quality to them, which is fun in a Borgesian kind of way. It’s also about as close as a work of art can come to perfection, existing only as a reflection of something else."
