Staff Picks: Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel by Suzanna Clarke (Adult Fiction)

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

Susanna Clarke brings the spirit of the Napoleonic Wars to life in a historical fantasy that chronicles the tutelage and rivalry of two magicians who hope to aid the British crown. Talented and highly opinionated Mr. Norrell and his young apprentice Jonathan Strange perform feats of magic that equally astonish and horrify. This imaginative and epic journey is filled with irony and subtle humor and is a real treat for fans of historical fantasy.
