You must attend to the commencement of this story, for when we get to the end we shall know more than we do now about a very wicked hobgoblin; he was one of the very worst, for he was a real demon. One day, when he was in a merry mood, he made a looking-glass which had the power of making everything good or beautiful that was reflected in it almost shrink to nothing, while everything that was worthless and bad looked increased in size and worse than ever. The most lovely landscapes appeared like boiled spinach, and the people became hideous, and looked as if they stood on their heads and had no bodies. Their countenances were so distorted that no one could recognize them, and even one freckle on the face appeared to spread over the whole of the nose and mouth. The demon said this was very amusing. When a good or pious thought passed through the mind of any one it was misrepresented in the glass; and then how the demon laughed at his cunning invention. All who went to the demon's school- for he kept a school- talked everywhere of the wonders they had seen, and declared that people could now, for the first time, see what the world and mankind were really like. They carried the glass about everywhere, till at last there was not a land nor a people who had not been looked at through this distorted mirror. They wanted even to fly with it up to heaven to see the angels, but the higher they flew the more slippery the glass became, and they could scarcely hold it, till at last it slipped from their hands, fell to the earth, and was broken into millions of pieces. But now the looking-glass caused more unhappiness than ever, for some of the fragments were not so large as a grain of sand, and they flew about the world into every country. When one of these tiny atoms flew into a person's eye, it stuck there unknown to him, and from that moment he saw everything through a distorted medium, or could see only the worst side of what he looked at, for even the smallest fragment retained the same power which had belonged to the whole mirror. Some few persons even got a fragment of the looking-glass in their hearts, and this was very terrible, for their hearts became cold like a lump of ice. A few of the pieces were so large that they could be used as window-panes; it would have been a sad thing to look at our friends through them. Other pieces were made into spectacles; this was dreadful for those who wore them, for they could see nothing either rightly or justly. At all this the wicked demon laughed till his sides shook- it tickled him so to see the mischief he had done. There were still a number of these little fragments of glass floating about in the air, and now you shall hear what happened with one of them.

«Pensarci? E a cosa Lucy?». La bambina si voltò verso di lei, leggermente sorpresa di non capire, non era solita lasciarsi sfuggire ciò che le persone volevano esprimere a parole: «Come cosa Selene? Andiamo, non prendermi in giro, sto parlando di ...». La voce della ragazzina sfumò, così come il suo ricordo, mentre le strade della Londra ottocentesca riprendevano la consueta fattezza, tipica del nuovo secolo. Selene si guardò intorno constatando di essere rimasta sola, una mano in lontananza si agitava cercando di attirare la sua attenzione: «Selene sbrigati oppure ci lasciano indietro! Chi lo vuole sentire Smacker dopo?», la voce di Amy era poco meno di un urlo; la ragazza sorrise al vedere la reazione della gente, le persone non cambiavano più di tanto anche dopo secoli.

Barrett Meeks, reduce dall’ennesima delusione amorosa, sta camminando per Central Park quando all’improvviso sente di dover guardare verso il cielo; lassù vede una luce pallida, evanescente, che sembra illuminare proprio lui con un’aura quasi divina. Barrett non crede nelle visioni – o in Dio – ma non può negare ciò a cui ha appena assistito. Allo stesso tempo, nel più modesto quartiere di Bushwick, a Brooklyn, Tyler, il fratello di Barrett, un musicista ancora in cerca del successo, sta tentando – con poca fortuna – di scrivere una canzone per la sua fidanzata Beth, da eseguire il giorno del loro prossimo matrimonio. Beth è molto malata e Tyler è deciso a scrivere una canzone che non sia solo una ballata romantica, ma una vera e propria espressione di eterno amore. Barrett, ossessionato dalla luce, si butta a capofitto nella religione. Tyler invece si convince sempre più che solo le droghe possono sbloccare la sua vena creativa. Beth da parte sua cerca di affrontare la vita con la forza e il coraggio che riesce a raccogliere. Come in Le Ore, Michael Cunningham coglie i personaggi di questo suo sesto romanzo nei momenti decisivi delle loro esistenze, momenti in cui si toccano la vita e la morte, il dolore e il piacere, il desiderio e l’abbandono. E con La regina delle nevi ci consegna una storia luminosa che arriva diritta al cuore del lettore e che lo accompagnerà per lungo tempo.
