Has anybody other than me read this book? It was set in Cornwall and was such a wonderful story! The imagery de Lint describes is so beautiful! Does it reflect what the place is actually like, or is it all just a fanciful word-picture?

Never having been to Cornwall, I have no idea! But I really enjoy almost all of Charles DeLint's books. Make an effort to find more, Wizard, you will love them!
(We may have to move this thread to the book forum tho.....)

I have read several of de Lint's books and I agree with you that they are excellent!

And if you think we need to move this, that's fine by me! biggrin.gif
