Warner is such a widely celebrated writer that it is a source of some wonderment that this is the first full-length study of her work. Warner is a novelist whose work is rooted in traditional forms such as legend, romance and fairy tale yet who is wholly contemporary in her thinking. This is a must read for students and fans alike.
