"This collection of more than twenty-five critical essays, speeches, and biographical pieces written and/or chosen by Diana Wynne Jones will be required reading for the author's many fans and for students and teachers of the genre. Reflections includes insightful literary criticism alongside autobiographical anecdotes about reading tours (including an account of the author's famous travel jinx), revelations about the origins of the author's books, and thoughts in general about the life of an author and the value of writing. The longest autobiographical piece, "Something About the Author," details Diana's extraordinary childhood and is illustrated with family photographs. Reflections is essential reading for anyone interested in Diana Wynne Jones's work, fantasy, or creative writing. With a foreword by Neil Gaiman, introduction and interview by Charlie Butler, bibliography, and index. "Various threads run through this collection, but by far the strongest is that of the need for fantasy in all its many facets and its value for children and adults alike. It is my hope that some of these items will be of use to people."-Diana Wynne Jones "Her writings assembled in one place tell us how she thought about literature and the reasons for literature, about the place of children's fiction in the world, about the circumstances that shaped her and her own understanding and vision of who she was and what she did. It is ferociously intelligent, astonishingly readable, and as with so much that Diana Wynne Jones did, she makes each thing she writes, each explanation for why the world is as it is, look so easy."-Neil Gaiman"--… (lisätietoja)

Very interesting series of essays/lectures/speeches, about the how and the why of Diana Wynne Jones' writing (mostly by her - a couple speeches by her sons, after her death). She is a fantastic writer (in several senses), but some of her books are very confusing to me - reading this, I figured out why (I don't know if they will be less confusing the next time I read them, but at least I now have an idea what she was aiming for). It's also very amusing, in several spots - the one(s) about visiting schools, in particular, caused me to chuckle aloud several times. Especially the one where Witch Week came true(ish). Very glad I read it - not sure whether I'll reread, but I suspect it will be memorable in any case. ( )

I loved reading all of Diana Wynne Jones' books. There was an easy magical flow about them. I had to read this too as it is the last of her books, published after her death with a foreword by Neil Gaiman. It's a combination of essays, short stories, and reflections by Diana herself, along with interviews with her, and reflections on her by others. It provides a deeper understanding of her writing and is a wonderful tribute to her. I certainly learned a bit more about Diana, but I think what she told people may not be completely true! Just how she interpreted her life. Her sons believed her books reflected her true nature. I just want to read all her books again! ( )

Enjoyable anecdotes and practical advice. A few of the pieces are difficult to understand without having read the books which are discussed. ( )

I found wonderful inspiration in this memoir, both for how Diana approached writing her stories as well as outstanding insights about the craft, generally. There were details of the author's childhood ~ an almost Gothic upbringing! She explained why she rarely wrote sequels and why her books don't fully explain all the concepts. She leaves room for children and young adults to find their own enchanting meanings. It was also light relief to hear of some amusing anecdotes during her school visits.

Being a very enthusiastic DWJ fan, I overlooked the repetition between some of the essays. The memoir is a compilation of essays and public presentations over time, and as such, presented in their entirety. Although the book was published in the year following her death, she chose her pieces that were to be included in Reflections. Neil Gaiman's Forward and Charlie Butler's Refelecting on Reflections are both moving accolades to Diana. ( )
