How have bookstores been shelving The Magician's Book? In the young adult section along w/ Narnia, or in a nonfiction section like criticism, memoir, etc?

I don't know, Jim. The times I've seen it in stores, it was on a display table. The topic slug on the back of the paperback says "literature," so I suspect most of the time it'll be in criticism.

Congratulations, Laura, on the paperback. Really nice to hear you stand back and reflect on the journey so far.

Buy the book from Powell’s Books or Barnesandnoble.com. Or, if you must, Amazon.


"Conversational, embracing, and casually erudite, Laura Miller's superb long essay is the kind that comes along too rarely, a foray into the garden of one book that opens to the whole world of reading, becoming in the process a subtle reader's memoir, and manifesto."
-- Jonathan Lethem
