    The best-selling author of Second Nature, Illumination Night and Turtle Moon now offers her most fascinating and tantalizingly accomplished novel yet -- a winning tale that amply confirms Alice Hoffman's reputation not only as a genius of the vivid scene and unforgettable character but as one of America's most captivating storytellers.

    What did you love best about Practical Magic?

    The narration had a really musical quality - an unusual rhythm that really seemed to go with the story...or did the rhythm come from the story?


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its much more realistic, and actually more believably magical than the movie. In fact, I can't understand why the movie made such HUGE departures from this lovely story.


    Which character – as performed by Cherry Jones – was your favorite?

    My favorite character performed by Cherry Jones was Jillian.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - it was a nice treat for myself on my commute. I enjoyed savoring it, and have listened to it twice more.
