Editorial Reviews

Review

Tamsin is a ghost story but, like anything else Beagle has written, transcends its genre. Beagle writes too sparingly for his fans, but he apparently cannot write a bad book.”—The Orlando Sentinel

“Fantasy rarely dances through the imagination in more radiant garb than this.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“If you like ghost stories, if you like tales of boggles and boggarts and things that live just beyond our ken, then Tamsin will satisfy you completely. But be warned, Beagle's characters will stay in your heart forever, and he possesses the damnedest ability to make one cry by the end of the book. What reader can ask for more?”—Crescent Blues

“With…Peter S. Beagle novels, you know that what you're getting is something that has been lovingly and painstakingly crafted, and thus to be cherished. Tamsin…stands as another high-water mark in a career consisting of practically nothing but. Smashing storytelling…Electrifying entertainment in every way, Tamsin blends mystery, history, and the hope of love that blooms its strongest when you're very young, into a novel sure to become as dear to readers' hearts as The Last Unicorn.”—SF Reviews

“An appealing intermingling of history, folklore, and the supernatural.”—Kirkus Reviews


 

About the Author

Peter S. Beagle was born in 1939 and raised in the Bronx, just a few blocks from Woodlawn Cemetery, the inspiration for his first novel, A Fine and Private Place. Today, thanks to classic works such as The Last Unicorn, Tamsin, and The Innkeeper’s Song, he is acknowledged as America’s greatest living fantasy author; and his dazzling abilities with language, characters, and magical storytelling have earned him many millions of fans around the world.
 
In addition to stories and novels Beagle has written numerous teleplays and screenplays, including the animated versions of The Lord of the Rings and The Last Unicorn, plus the fan-favorite “Sarek” episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. His nonfiction book I See By My Outfit, which recounts a 1963 journey across America on motor scooter, is considered a classic of American travel writing; and he is also a gifted poet, lyricist, and singer/songwriter.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable font
By Gussie Fink Nottle on January 8, 2020
Is this a good book? Who knows? Not me, because the edition I got* is unreadable. It is printed in tiny, blurry font squeezed onto pages with abnormally wide margins. At least the outside margins are wide. The inner margins were bound too close to the spine so you have to break it to be able to see the words without tilting the book. Now I see what dyslexics mean when they talk about words swimming around on the page.
