Product description


"The wide-reaching world building of Milford’s Nagspeake novels gets even more expansive. The stories are purely enjoyable, playfully toying with folktale conventions, offering a compelling variety of genres, and allowing each teller’s voice to clearly come through in their tale." — Booklist

"At times wryly humorous and at others marvelously unnerving and superbly menacing, this novel delights. Deliciously immersive and captivating." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"At once a deeply satisfying standalone and a smart addition to Milford’s expansive world, this elegant feat of telescopic storytelling serves as both map and key, offering singular stories of consequence that slowly, artfully reveal an immersive mystery—one that will dazzle seasoned Milford fans and kindle new ones." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Intricately written, gorgeously crafted, and captivating from start to finish, The Raconteur's Commonplace Book is the kind of title that remains in your heart." — Locus

"If the Canterbury Tales were filled to the brim with magic and mystery, you couldn’t find a better collection than what Milford has produced here." — Betsy Bird, Fuse #8

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!!!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 13 May 2021
Wow. Just when I think Kate Milford can’t get any better, she blows me away w/every new book of hers I read. This was utterly FANTASTIC. She has such a talent for telling a story, weaving together the amazing world & all her characters. I love how all of her books are connected in some way, & you find little hints, clues, & familiarity in all of them that link them. It was so nice to see all of that again in this-familiar tidbits & characters from other books that I miss & think of often..Her writing is like a gigantic puzzle & each book is many of the pieces to that puzzle. TALENT. This book is another puzzle within that puzzle. This book is based off the book Milo reads in Greenglass House. There are hints & clues throughout this book where you try to piece together each persons story or secret to get to the bigger picture. As usual, each character is so different & identifiable to the next. You feel as if you know each & every 1 of the characters she writes. Nagspeake has become a character in itself. With all its living parts, including the moving iron. She has made me feel so connected to this world she has created, that I so wish I could go there & see all the wonders of it, & meet these amazing characters. Everything is so vivid & atmospheric, w/some of the most beautiful writing. The fact that she has taken so many original stories & put them in a book, & written story around it-amazing..even more so when you consider the different types of stories-what they’re about, the form, the length. Then also, how she somehow makes all of those individual stories have a structural purpose to the overall main story. Not only does she somehow link each one to the current story, like they are each individual puzzle pieces to build the main story, but she also at the same time manages to link some of them to OTHER things from her other books. She’s a genius. All there is to it. Lol I can’t wait to reread all of her books in the order she recommends, & find all the other pieces to the puzzle I may have missed along the way. Love this stunning cover done by Jaime Zollars, & the inside beautiful illustrations done by Nicole Wong. Highly recommend all her books. Along w/the author of my favorite series of all time, she is my other favorite author of all time now.💜
