Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Un recorrido por la vida del libro y de quienes lo han salvaguardado durante casi treinta siglos. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Muy bien escrito, con páginas realmente admirables; el amor a los libros y a la lectura son la atmósfera en la que transcurren las páginas de esta obra maestra. Tengo la seguridad absoluta de que se seguirá leyendo cuando sus lectores de ahora estén ya en la otra vida”. 
- MARIO VARGAS LLOSA
 
“Un viaje muy libre y muy sabio y muy digresivo por el mundo del libro desde la creación de la Biblioteca de Alejandría hasta la caída del Imperio romano; Irene Vallejo acaba de firmar un libro genial, universal, único”.
- JORDI CARRIÓN, The New York Times
 
“Vallejo ha decidido sabiamente liberarse del estilo académico y ha optado por la voz del cuentista, la historia entendida no como ristra de documentos citados, sino como fábula. Así para el lector común y corriente (a quien reivindicaba Virginia Woolf) es más conmovedor y más inmediato este encantador ensayo, por ser simplemente un homenaje al libro de la parte de una lectora apasionada”.
- ALBERTO MANGUEL, Babelia
 
“Esos libros que te desbravan, que te doman, que te imponen el ritmo de lectura, que te quitan los nervios, no suelen encontrarse, pese a ser tan necesarios, en las primeras líneas de las mesas de novedades. El último de los descubiertos por mí se titula El infinito en un junco y es de Irene Vallejo”.
- JUAN JOSÉ MILLÁS, El País
 
“Se puede ser un filólogo magistral y al mismo tiempo escribir como los ángeles. Irene Vallejo riza el rizo de la comunicación hasta convertir su diálogo con el lector en una fiesta literaria”.
- LUIS ALBERTO DE CUENCA, ABC
 
“Irene Vallejo acaba de firmar un libro genial, universal, único, que sin duda se convertirá en un clásico”.
- JUAN BOLEA, El Periódico de Aragón
  --This text refers to the paperback edition.
