In Merlin And Company Alvaro Cunquerio creates a fantastical framework within which he envokes ancient myths and settings that are coloured by his own lively wit and perceptions.In the world which Cunquerio conjures up,magic has quite literally gone into retirement:the court magician merlin seeks seclusion in a Galician house well away from the public eye.However,his spells remain very much in demand and princes and kings beat a path to his door to ask for his assistance.This,the last legend of Merlin,remains a spell binding tribute to thestory telling skills of one of Spains leading authors.

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
