Peter S. Beagle first imagined his beloved unicorn at the age of twenty-three, five years before she would spring into the world. Now, alongside Beagle’s wry musings upon his early writing career, is the rediscovered origin story of fantasy’s most famous unicorn. Within this genesis of The Last Unicorn, our equine heroine encounters a cranky dragon, a chatty butterfly, and an exiled demon with a split personality.
Discover a might-have-been journey, appealingly familiar yet wonderfully strange, lyrical and whimsical by turns. Somewhere in-between the modern and mythological, lies the first path of the Last Unicorn on a road less traveled by . . . until now.
