The Children's Book

Interesting piece by Robert McCrum in the Guardian about, or perhaps more aptly, around, A.S. Byatt's new novel The Children's Book, which I really do need to read.

Over at The Independent, Byatt suggests that "The children's writer on the whole wants to be a child, and takes up the central place in the child's story." Hmm.

I just started reading this last night -- like it so far. Makes me want to reread E. Nesbit's biography, though.

Oooo... I saw an article in the Toronto Star about this! Must get it.
