Jonathan Strange - online seminar

Crooked Timber are running a seminar on Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. It includes a contribution by the author. You can read the whole thing online here (scroll back through the posts - and you can also read comments as people post them) or download it as a PDF here.

I haven't started reading yet, but I bet it's worth a look if you liked the book, which I did.

ETA - here is a fine quote from Susannah Clark

"I’m with Alan Garner: the landscape of England (particularly Northern England) is the bit of magic we can actually see and touch for ourselves"

I guess everyone feels this about their native land, but I do feel an immanence of magical power in the English landscape, and I admire Alan Garner for the way he portrays it.

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
