Spufford, Francis


"With its precisely rendered invocations of what it is like to discover Tolkien's Middle-Earth or C. S. Lewis's Narnia or Laura Ingalls Wilder's prairie for the first time, this book grants much the same sort of sentimental satisfactions as might be gained from a dark winter's afternoon spent rummaging through an attic. It also offers an intelligent, thoughtful inquiry into how the pleasure of reading actually works.Spufford, Francis is the author of 'The Child That Books Built: A Life in Reading', published 2002 under ISBN 9780805072150 and ISBN 0805072152.
