The Child that Books Built

by Francis (author) Spufford

The anticipated new novel by Francis Spufford, Light Perpetual, is now available to preorder!

What would you find if you went back and re-read your favourite books from childhood?

In The Child That Books Built Francis Spufford revisits all those childhood obsessions: fairy tales; Where the Wild Things Are; The Lord of the Rings; The Chronicles of Narnia; Little House on the Prairie; The Wind in the Willows; The Earthsea Trilogy and more. In these treasured tales Francis Spufford discovers both delight and sadness - the thrill as worlds of imagination opened up before him mixed with the memories of a boy who retreated into books when faced with a family tragedy.
