I found my copy of Tea with the Black Dragon and have rediscovered a brilliant story and a brilliant writer.

This book is a little treasure, absolutely delightful - I've never found its equivalent anywhere. A book of magic, that contains one of my favourite fictional characters of all time - the inimitable Mayland Long. (Ever since I read this book, I have coveted his raw silk suit.) The story is relatively straightforward, but the genius of this book is not in the plot, but in its descriptions and conversations.

Elegant, enchanting, mysterious, this book proceeds with the feeling of an adult reading a newly discovered fairy tale. The characters, despite their difficulties and obstacles, live with an attitude and in a manner that I wish I did. Perhaps that's why I love this book so much.

R. A. MacAvoy has done something very rare and special in this book: written with wisdom, compassion and humor about people who are at once very ordinary and quite extraordinary. Martha is a woman in her middle years who moves through the world with freshness, originality, and a youthful spirit; her friend Mayland Long is incredibly ancient and yet has just been born. Together they struggle with a new, technical wizardry, foreign to them both. As in Peter Beagle's _A Fine and Private Place_, the mundane and the spiritual commingle in beautiful and unexpected ways. From the convolutions and paradoxes which are a part of all our lives, MacAvoy weaves a story which is on one level an exploration of what it means to be human, with human emotions and human responsibilities -- and on another level is simply a ripping good yarn. Whatever you look for in a book, you will find here.

I second all the comments, there is not much else to say except how lucky I was to find it. I too believe that this is a classic and its one of the books that I will always keep. I have reread it several times. It is certainly not one of the stock sword and sorcery sagas that give fantasy a poor reputation. Long may she write!

If you're looking for one of those typical 'Save the World' fantasies with wizards and boy kings, this isn't it. If you're looking for a gentle fantasy by a stylist who ranks among the best in the field of fantasy (DeLint, McKillip, Shinn, Dean), this book is for you. I hope it is re-issued some day soon.
