Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Alberto Manguel's] imagination is supple and generous, and his work is full of surprises."—A. S. Byatt, The Washington Post



"The area which Alberto Manguel has mapped for himself is that of the eros of reading. He celebrates the diversities of desire—tempestuous, hidden, intermittent, lapsed—which relate us to a literary text."—George Steiner, The Guardian
