Lev Grossman reads from his new novel The Magician King


Time magazine book critic Lev Grossman’s The Magicians was praised as a triumph by readers and critics of both mainstream and fantasy literature. It debuted at #7 on the New York Times bestseller list in the summer of 2009 and has taken on a life of its own over the past two years. Now Grossman is back with the much-anticipated sequel.  

The Magician King is a grand voyage into the dark, glittering heart of magic, filled with high-level spell casting, soothsaying dragons, and interdimensional portals. But at heart, it is the brilliant reckoning of two young people who must accept the limitations of their ambition in order to thrive. With this novel, Lev Grossman again crafts an utterly original and textured world, one where morality isn’t simple and fulfillment is always just beyond reach.
