Description
INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERIn the Hugo-award winning, epic New York Times Bestseller and basis for the BBC miniseries, two men change England's history when they bring magic back into the world. In the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in 1806, most people believe magic to have long since disappeared from England - until the reclusive Mr. Norrell reveals his powers and becomes an overnight celebrity. Another practicing magician then emerges: the young and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's pupil, and the two join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wild, most perilous forms of magic, and he soon risks sacrificing his partnership with Norrell and everything else he holds dear. Susanna Clarke's brilliant first novel is an utterly compelling epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two magicians who, first as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history.Time #1 Book of the YearBook Sense Book of the YearPeople Top Ten Books of the Year Winner of the Hugo AwardNew York Times Notable Book of the YearSalon.com Top Ten of 2004Winner of the World Fantasy Award Nancy Pearl's Top 12 Books of 2004 Washington Post Book World's Best of 2004 Christian Science Monitor Best Fiction 2004 San Francisco Chronicle Best Books of 2004 Winner of the Locus Award for Best First Novel Chicago Tribune Best of 2004 Seattle Times 25 Best Books of 2004 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Top 12 Books of 2004 Village Voice "Top Shelf" Raleigh News & Observer Best of 2004 Rocky Mountain News critics' favorites of 2004
