Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke is a 846-page softcover published in 2004 by Bloomsbury Publishing. The bottom corner has a faint crease. Inside, the pages are clean and unmarked. Some of the pages have some light foxing. The condition is good.
Susanna Clarke's brilliant first novel is an utterly compelling epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two very different magicians who, as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history. In the year 1806, in the throes of the Napoleonic Wars, most people believe magic to be dead in England--until the reclusive Mr Norrell of Hurtfew Abbey reveals his powers, and becomes a celebrity overnight. Soon, another practicing magician emerges: the young, handsome, and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's student, and the two join forces in the war against France. But as Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic, he risks sacrificing not only his partnership with Mr Norrell, but everything else he holds dear. An international bestseller published in 31 countries, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a tour de force that has captured the imaginations of readers worldwide.ISBN: 1-58234-603-8
