    Winner of the British Book Awards, Newcomer of the Year, 2005.

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    Vor vielen Jahrhunderten gab es in England noch Magie. Jetzt, zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts, glaubt niemand mehr an wirkliche Zauberei. Bis der zurückgezogen lebende Mr. Norrell auftaucht und die Statuen der Kathedrale von York sprechen und tanzen lässt. Die Nachricht über dieses Ereignis verbreitet sich, und Mr. Norrell geht nach London. Er nimmt den brillanten jungen Zauberer Jonathan Strange als Schüler auf und begründet mit ihm eine neue Tradition englischer Magie.
