This is a grown-up book for grown-up people who haven’t forgotten being childhood readers. It satisfies imagination and curiosity, revisiting things you suddenly remember clearly, telling you new things you didn’t know.
A. S. Byatt reviews Maria Tatar’s Enchanted Hunters in the Guardian.
One response to “Byatt on Tatar’s Enchanted Hunters”
