Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke

by Susanna Clarke
recommended for: anyone

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
