There is a short list of books that hold a special meaning for me. The Little Country by Charles de Lint is one of those books. I read this book back in the early 1990s when I was a bookseller in Santa Fe.
The Little Country was the book I hand sold the most to customers when they came into the bookstore. I had a lot of success with readers who did not read fantasy.
This extraordinary gothic tale takes place in an Edinburgh tenement, following the lives of all residents in overlapping stories over several decades. I devoured this in one sitting, it was so good.
