Rec Room: Alex Halperin: The Magicians

November 3, 2009

Alex_Halperin-small.jpgI’m not a fantasy reader but I loved Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, a sort of mumblecore Harry Potter. The insouciant characters are perhaps a bit thin but Grossman is exceptionally skilled at blending the tropes of fantasy with the conventions of slacker culture.
