Lev Grossman: The Magicians


"Very dark and very scary, with no simple answers provided — fantasy for grown-ups, in other words, and very satisfying indeed." Kirkus Reviews

"The Magicians is a great fairy tale, written for grown-ups but appealing to our most basic desires for stories to bring about some re-enchantment with the world, where monsters lurk but where a young man with a little magic may prevail." —Keith Donohue, The Washington Post

The Time magazine book critic and international bestselling author of Codex visits with his New York Times bestseller The Magicians.

Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable, a certifiable genius who’s secretly obsessed with a series of fantasy novels he read as a kid, about the adventures of five children in a magical land called Fillory. When Quentin is admitted to an exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, he receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery. He also discovers the other things people learn in college: friendship, love, booze, and boredom. But magic doesn’t bring Quentin the happiness he thought it would until he makes a stunning discovery: Fillory is real.
