The Deathly Hallows Lectures: The Hogwarts Professor Explains the Final Harry Potter Adventure [Paperback]
by John Granger

The fastest-selling book in publication history, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" was a critical success and is loved by fans around the world. Now John Granger reveals the Potter finale's details, themes and meanings.

Potter fans will be surprised by and delighted with the Hogwarts Professor's explanations of the three dimensions of meaning in "Deathly Hallows" to include why Ms. Rowling chose to make Lily's eyes green, why Harry buried Moody's eye where and when he did, and why Ollivander prefers the three wand cores he does.

Ms. Rowling has said that alchemy sets the "parameters of magic" in the series; after reading the chapter-length explanation of "Deathly Hallows" as the final stage of the alchemical Great Work in "The Deathly Hallows Lectures", the serious reader will understand how important literary alchemy is in understanding Rowling's artistry and accomplishment.

The other seven chapters explore, among other things, the five writing tricks Ms. Rowling uses to work her story magic, the deciphering of the "Triangular Eye" symbol for the three Hallows, Harry's "struggle to believe" in Albus Dumbledore, why Ms. Rowling revealed that she "always thought" of the Headmaster as gay, and the more than 25 echoes of her first book, "Philosopher's Stone", in "Deathly Hallows".

Granger explains how Ms. Rowling's story formula required various twists -- as well as two trips to King's Cross and two meetings with Albus Dumbledore at story's end -- information unavailable anywhere else!

Zossima Press (July 2008). Trade paperback. 312 pages.
