Read of the Month
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
Tuesday, October 21st, at 7 pm
Hosted by Virginia H.
In Harkness's lively debut, witches, vampires, and demons outnumber
humans at Oxford's Bodleian Library, where witch and Yale historian
Diana Bishop discovers an enchanted manuscript, attracting the attention
of 1,500-year-old vampire Matthew Clairmont. The orphaned daughter of
two powerful witches, Bishop prefers intellect, but relies on magic when
her discovery of a palimpsest documenting the origin of supernatural
species releases an assortment of undead who threaten, stalk, and harass
her. Against all occult social propriety, Bishop turns for protection
to tall, dark, bloodsucking man-about-town Clairmont. Their research
raises questions of evolution and extinction among the living dead, and
their romance awakens centuries-old enmities. Harkness imagines a
crowded universe where normal and paranormal creatures observe a tenuous
peace. "Magic is desire made real," Bishop says after both her desire
and magical prowess exceed her expectations. Harkness brings this world
to vibrant life and makes the most of the growing popularity of gothic
adventure with an ending that keeps the Old Lodge door wide open, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its
reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with
her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.
