Om författaren

Peter S. Beagle was born in Manhattan in April of 1939. During his senior year of high school, Beagle entered a poem and a short story in the 1955 Scholastic Writing Awards Contest, not knowing that the Grand Prize was a college education. He won that prize and went on to spend four years at the visa mer University of Pittsburgh after graduating from high school in 1955. In his sophomore year at the University of Pittsburgh, Beagle entered another contest, winning first place again in Seventeen Magazine's Short Story Contest. At the age of 19, he published "A Fine and Private Place." Beagle graduated college with a degree in Creative Writing and a Spanish minor and then spent a year overseas. When he returned, his new-found agent had enrolled him in a writing workshop at Stanford. After his first few published stories, Beagle supported himself and his family as a freelancer for many years. In the 70's he began to write screenplays, as well as take up the hobby of singing folk songs at a local club. Beagle has published music as well as books, both his passions, and both lucrative. Beagle gives lectures and readings at universities, and also hosts writing workshops at schools such as the University of Washington and Clarion West. His works have been translated into 15 languages. Beagle has also written a script for Star Trek: The Next Generation and the screenplay for the animated feature version of The Lord of the Rings. In 1987, Beagle's "The Last Unicorn" was proclaimed the Number 5 All Time Fantasy Novel. That same year, "The Innkeeper's Song" won the Mythopoetic Fantasy Award. In 1997, "The Unicorn Sonata" won the Locus Poll Award for Best Novella, and in 1998, "Giant Bones" won the same award as well as being nominated for the 1998 World Fantasy Award.

Sweet and whimsical, but also longwinded and trying to be poetic and deep. I liked it, but I didn’t love it.

Growing up, I loved the animated version of The Last Unicorn, but I never read anything written by Beagle until I was an adult. This collection of short stories is the first time since I was a kid where I was able to immerse myself in his storytelling.There's a wide variety of topics here, but each story has the same feeling of truth and realness. Only a few of the author's notes call out an autobiographical aspect to the stories, but you get the sense that Beagle put a little bit of himself in each piece. Even the completely fictional pieces feel somehow real.

“Professor Gottesman and the Indian Rhinoceros”
Very sweet and touching story, and I love Beagle's writing style as shown here. I think this is a perfect opener for this collection.

“Come Lady Death”
I liked reading this story, though few of the characters were likable. (But I think that was the point of the story, and it worked. I liked Death a lot; Death was a fun character.)

“Lila the Werewolf”
Bittersweet werewolf story that didn’t go the way I expected it to at all. Still not sure what I think of it.

“Gordon, the Self-Made Cat”
This is a really cute story. I think it’s one of those stories that could be enjoyed equally by kids and adults, though each will get something different out of it.

Four Fables
“The Fable of the Moth”
“The Fable of the Tyrannosaurus Rex”
“The Fable of the Ostrich”
“The Fable of the Octopus”

These short fables are amusing, though (like most of Aesop) I don’t think they’ll stick with me long. Fun reads, though.

“El Regalo”
I’m very curious to see what else Beagle ends up writing in this universe, if anything. It feels like this world is very well developed and I’m interested in reading more.

“Uncle Chaim and Aunt Rifke and the Angel”
I enjoyed reading the author's background notes on this story. I also enjoyed the story itself, which was as much about the way we see things differently as kids and adults as it was about the religious themes.

“We Never Talk about My Brother”
Oooh, I liked this story. It didn't go anywhere near the direction I had expected it to go, but I liked it a lot. The way it was told (aka you hear one side of an interview and have to assume the questions and interruptions) worked really well for me.

“King Pelles the Sure”
This one's very bittersweet. I found it a very interesting story to read, but it wasn't always a "comfortable" one.

“The Last and Only; or, Mr. Moscowitz Becomes French”
This is a bit of an odd story. Neat concept, and yet it didn't really do anything for me. I was more interested in Mrs. Moscowitz than her husband, personally.

I loved the concept on this one, but I think it would be much better listened to instead of read in print.

“The Stickball Witch”
I didn't expect to like this one based on the first few paragraphs, but it turned into something magical once our narrator actually met The Stickball Witch. I liked it a ton more than I had hoped.

“A Dance for Emilia”
This story is lovely and sad and touching and real. It is hard to describe the feeling that it evokes in words—and I'm certainly not going to give any spoilers about the plot—but it is worth the price of the book all on its own. This is the perfect way to close out the collection.

This is the type of book I would expect to love, but I couldn't get into it for some reason. Maybe I just read it at the wrong time.
