Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke Clarke does an excellent job of recreating the atmosphere of a Jane Austen novel with the twist of an alternate history in which magic is a significant part of England. This is one of my favorite books in recent years. The characters are rich and carefully developed. The author's humor comes through in the subtle details.
