The Magician King

Book cover, ''The Magician King''

Harry Potter paved the way for many fantasy novels, including one written by Time Magazine book critic Lev Grossman. "The Magicians" (Viking Adult/2009), took an adult look at the mythical world of magic and tackled issues of sex, drugs and existential angst. The sequel, "The Magician King" (Viking Adult/2011), is out now and continues its offbeat examination of the magical life.

Host Frank Stasio talks to Grossman about his new novel ahead of his appearance at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill tonight at 7 p.m.
