Leonard Marcus interviewed thirteen authors—including Brian Jacques, Philip Pullman, and Tamora Pierce--about pivotal life experiences, literary influences, and their beliefs about the place of fantasy in literature and in our lives.

This book was quick and enjoyable. It provides some insights into the lives of successful child fantasy authors. I only wish that some adult fantasy writers could have been included. Still, this book is good for anyone with an interest in writing fantasy or if you just want to know more about the authors that were interviewed. There are some good tips and bits of advice for young (and possibly not-so-young) writers that may prove helpful.
