Description

In the turn-of-the-century United States, an elderly and peculiar book collector is surrounded by an odd and endearing cast of characters: his friends, Judge Methuen, Doctor O?Rell, his sister, and childhood sweethearts. This smart and funny novel is about the delights, adventures, and misadventures of bibliomania and the joy of living.

Perhaps I'm uncharacteristically susceptible right now because I'm hardly half way through this intoxicating assemblage of words and I'm in love.

Obsession with collecting (media, especially) hasn't changed a bit from the mid-1890s to the mid-2010s.

Wonderful collection of essays.
