Product description


"Sometimes directly, sometimes obliquely, the reader comes to know Diana Wynne Jones through this book in ways which few conventional autobiographies allow ... Reflections is certainly a compelling read for anyone interested in writing, in how an author sees children as readers, in fantasy, and in the shifting fashions of the children’s lit scene from the seventies to the present day. And, of course, it is essential reading for all those, many of them adult, devoted to Wynne Jones’ work." (Books for Keeps Books for Keeps)

"For Jones, fantasy is a medium where magic stands as a metaphor for thoughts, offering readers a forum where they can both recognise and validate their most powerful daydreams ... This present book [is] an admirable commentary on all [the] work from a writer of rare distinction." (Nicholas Tucker Independent Online)

"Often humorous, always fascinating, Diana Wynne Jones describes the influence of her own (astounding) childhood on her novels...Certainly of use to anyone interested in the importance of children's literature, and also an absorbing insight into the developing thoughts of a great author." (Susanna Thomson Carousel)
