Name that Book

I am completely seduced by those writers who use words to paint pictures. The book I'm currently reading includes this one:

"Making summertime out of lonesomeness."

and:

"The stillness was the sleep of swords."

Can you name the book?

I won't give it away immediately, but it's "T.E.W.W.G", by Z.N.H.

How did you find it? It's not what might be called "popular", and can be a bit of a slog, although worth the trek.

Silk -
You got it. It was one of the books I was supposed to read in high school but didn't (there were a lot of them). It's been sitting on my book shelf for a long time and I finally picked it up the other day and have barely been able to put it down since. The dialect is a bit difficult, but in between, the writing is just beautiful.
