Charles de Lint began his chronicle of the city of Newford in Memory & Dream. In Ivory and the Horn, this uncommonly gifted craftsman weaves a new tapestry of stark realism and fond hope, mean streets and boulevards of dreams, where readers discover the power of love and longing, wishes and desires, and the magic that hovers at the edge of everyday life.

Review:

"De Lint is a master of the modern urban folk tale." --"The Denver Post" "De Lint's writing is as good as ever, and his folkloric scholarship remains outstanding." --"Booklist" "This fanciful and moving collection of 15 tales, some loosely related with common characters, probes deeply into the nature of art and the souls of the poor and downtrodden....De Lint's evocative images, both ordinary and fantastic, jolt the imagination." --"Publisher's Weekly"

About the Author:

Born in Holland in 1951, Charles de Lint grew up in Canada, with a few years off in Turkey, Lebanon, and Switzerland. Although his first novel was 1984's "The Riddle of the Wren," it was with" Moonheart," published later that same year, that de Lint made his mark, and established him at the forefront of "urban fantasy," modern fantasy storytelling set on contemporary city streets. " Moonheart "was set in and around "Newford," an imaginary modern North American city, and many of de Lint's subsequent novels have been set in Newford as well, with a growing cast of characters who weave their way in and out of the stories. The Newford novels include" Spirit Walk, Memory and Dream, Trader, Someplace To Be Flying, Forests of the Heart, The Onion Girl, "and" Spirits in the Wires." In addition, de Lint has published several collections of Newford short stories, including "Moonlight and Vines," for which he won the World Fantasy Award. Among de Lint's many other novels are "Mulengro, Jack the Giant-Killer, "and" The Little Country." Married since 1980 to his fellow musician MaryAnn Harris, Charles de Lint lives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
