Details: Review "Gorgeously and richly bizarre, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is an enchanting experience from first to last word, brimming with charm, wit, creeping dread, and sense of wonder." -- Montreal Gazette "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is unquestionably the finest English novel of the fantastic written in the last 70 years." -- Neil Gaiman Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell combines the dark, wild spirit of English fantasy with the grand wit and high style of the 19th century social novel. It's a grand performance -- and the most sparkling literary debut of the year." -- About the Author Susanna Clarke was born in Nottingham in 1959, the eldest daughter of a Methodist Minister. A nomadic childhood was spent in towns in Northern England and Scotland. She was educated at St Hilda's College, Oxford, and has worked in various areas of non-fiction publishing, including Gordon Fraser and Quarto. In 1990 she left London and went to Turin to teach English to stressed-out executives of the Fiat motor company. The following year she taught English in Bilbao. She returned to England in 1992 and spent the rest of that year in County Durham, in a house that looked out over the North Sea. There she began working on her first novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. From 1993 to 2003 Susanna Clarke was an editor at Simon and Schuster's Cambridge office, where she worked on their cookery list.  She has published seven short stories and novellas in US anthologies. One, The Duke of Wellington Misplaces His Horse, first appeared in a limited-edition, illustrated chapbook from Green Man Press. Another, Mr Simonelli, or The Fairy Widower, was shortlisted for a World Fantasy Award in 2001. Susanna lives in Cambridge with her partner, the novelist and reviewer Colin Greenland.
