Praise for Magic for Beginners
 
“A sorceress to be reckoned with.” The New York Times Book Review
 
“[Kelly] Link’s stories . . . play in a place few writers go, a netherworld between literature and fantasy, Alice Munro and J. K. Rowling, and Link finds truths there that most authors wouldn’t dare touch.” —Lev Grossman, Time
 
“She is unique and should be declared a national treasure.” —Neil Gaiman
 
“Funny, scary, surprising and powerfully moving within the span of a single story or even a single sentence.” —Karen Russell, The Miami Herald
 
“This is what certain readers live for: fiction that makes the world instead of merely mimicking it.” —Audrey Niffenegger
 
“[These] exquisite stories mix the aggravations and epiphanies of everyday life with the stuff that legends, dreams and nightmares are made of.” —Laura Miller, Salon, Best Books of the Decade
 
“A major talent . . . Like George Saunders, [Link] can’t dismiss the hidden things that tap on our windows at night.” The Boston Globe
 
“The most darkly playful voice in American fiction.” —Michael Chabon
 
“I think she is the most impressive writer of her generation.” —Peter Straub
 
“Link’s world is one to savor. [Grade:] A” Entertainment Weekly
 
“Intricate, wildly imaginative and totally wonderful . . . will fill you with awe and joy.” —NPR

Description du livre HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. État : New. 197 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this dazzling collection, prize-winning short story writer Kelly Link takes the ordinary and makes it strange - and the strange and makes it ordinary. Engaging, funny, eerie and magical, these nine stories prove Link to be an original and important talent. Of all the books you read this year, this will be the one that you remember. Taking themes from horror and fantasy, these stories transform them into the stuff of delicate lyrical fantasy, with a distinctive and effervescent blend of humour and pathos. In Stone Animals , a middle-class family moves from Manhattan to a beautiful house in the suburbs. Almost immediately, their belongings become haunted, and they are increasingly unnerved by the growing hordes of rabbits that camp out nightly on the front lawn. The title story follows a group of adolescent schoolfriends whose experiences subtly parallel events in a surreal TV fantasy series which switches channels and times at whim. In The Hortlak , an all-night convenience store serves zombies as an experiment in retail; while The Faery Handbag features a village which takes refuge from time to time in a magical handbag. Bold, tender, mischievous and unsettling, Link s stories have the insistent quality of dreams and show a writer at the height of her powers. N° de réf. du libraire AA89780007242009
