Описание:
Диана Уинн Джонс (Diana Wynne Jones, 16 августа 1934 г. - 26 марта 2011 г.) — британская писательница фэнтези для детей и взрослых.
Книги Дианы Джонс характеризуются утонченной буффонадной конструкцией, она часто использует абсурдные ситуации, которые, тем не менее, не противоречат законам логики. Впрочем, немало внимания она уделяет и острым социальным ситуациям, применяет элементы пародии. Здесь прежде всего стоит упомянуть цикл «Деркхольм», который во многом является пародией, высмеивающей клишированные и однотипные истории меча и магии.
Диана является автором более сорока книг, переведённых на 17 языков. Обладает впечатляющим списком наград и номинаций, среди которых престижные World Fantasy Award и Mythopoeic Fantasy Award. Особой популярностью пользуются цикл «Миры Крестоманси» и роман «Ходячий замок». Критика до сих пор сравнивает столь нашумевшего «Гарри Поттера» именно с знаменитым сериалом «Миры Крестоманси», который появился на добрых два десятка лет раньше книг Джоан К. Роулинг. Произведения Джонс также часто сравнивают с книгами Робина МакКинли и Нила Геймана. Она дружит с Гейманом и они оба являются поклонниками произведений друг друга. Писательница посвятила роман «Гексвуд» (Hexwood) Гейману, почерпнув идею сюжета в одной из бесед с ним. В свою очередь, Гейман посвятил свою графическую книгу The Books of Magic «четырем ведьмам», одной из которых была именно Диана Уинн Джонс.
Роман «Заколдованная жизнь» — первый из серии о Крестоманси выиграл в 1977 Guardian Award как лучшая книга для детей. В 1999 году она выиграла еще две важные награды, имеющие влияние в мире фэнтези-литературы: награду за лучшее произведение для детей Mythopoeic Awards в США и Karl Edward Wagner Award в Великобритании.
По мотивам ее книги «Ходячий замок» в 2004 году японский аниматор Хаяо Миядзаки создал свой знаменитый мультфильм.

Chapter One
IN WHICH SOPHIE TALKS TO HATS


In the land of Ingary, where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of three. Everyone knows you are the one who will fail first, and worst, if the three of you set out to seek your fortunes.
Sophie Hatter was the eldest of three sisters. She was not even the child of a poor woodcutter, which might have given her some chance of success! Her parents were well to do and kept a ladies’ hat shop in the prosperous town of Market Chipping. True, her own mother died when Sophie was two years old and her sister Lettie was one year old, and their father married his youngest shop assistant, a pretty blonde girl called Fanny. Fanny shortly gave birth to the third sister, Martha. This ought to have made Sophie and Lettie into Ugly Sisters, but in fact all three girls grew up very pretty indeed, though Lettie was the one everyone said was most beautiful. Fanny treated all three girls with the same kindness and did not favor Martha in the least.
Mr. Hatter was proud of his three daughters and sent them all to the best school in town. Sophie was the most studious. She read a great deal, and very soon realized how little chance she had of an interesting future. It was a disappointment to her, but she was still happy enough, looking after her sisters and grooming Martha to seek her fortune when the time came. Since Fanny was always busy in the shop, Sophie was the one who looked after the younger two. There was a certain amount of screaming and hair-pulling between those younger two. Lettie was by no means resigned to being the one who, next to Sophie, was bound to be the least successful.
“It’s not fair!” Lettie would shout. “Why should Martha have the best of it just because she was born the youngest? I shall marry a prince, so there!”
To which Martha always retorted that she would end up disgustingly rich without having to marry anybody.
Then Sophie would have to drag them apart and mend their clothes. She was very deft with her needle. As time went on, she made clothes for her sisters too. There was one deep rose outfit she made for Lettie, the May Day before this story really starts, which Fanny said looked as if it had come from the most expensive shop in Kingsbury.

CAT CHANT ADMIRED his elder sister Gwendolen. She was a witch. He admired her and he clung to her. Great changes came about in their lives and left him no one else to cling to.
The first great change came about when their parents took them out for a day trip down the river in a paddle steamer. They set out in great style, Gwendolen and her mother in white dresses with ribbons, Cat and his father in prickly blue-serge Sunday suits. It was a hot day. The steamer was crammed with other people in holiday clothes, talking, laughing, eating whelks with thin slices of white bread and butter, while the paddleboat steam organ wheezed out popular tunes so that no one could hear themselves talk.
In fact the steamer was too crowded and too old. Something went wrong with the steering. The whole laughing, whelk-eating, Sunday-dressed crowd was swept away in the current from the dam. They hit one of the posts which were supposed to stop people being swept away, and the paddle steamer, being old, simply broke into pieces. Cat remembered the organ playing and the paddles beating the blue sky. Clouds of steam screamed from broken pipes and drowned the screams from the crowd, as every single person aboard was swept away through the dam. It was a terrible accident. The papers called it the Saucy Nancy Disaster. The ladies in their clinging skirts were quite unable to swim. The men in tight blue serge were very little better off. But Gwendolen was a witch, so she could not drown. And Cat, who flung his arms around Gwendolen when the boat hit the post, survived too. There were very few other survivors.
