As I’m reading though, I realised that this author is into something very different than I am. I’m tantalised by the universes he peeks into, the ideas he opens. And perhaps that’s part of it for him. But reading through the kindle version of his book, I’m realising that he’s also fascinated by the authors – their biographies and the editors’ comments sometimes more filled out than the paragraph he’s quoting. It seems a little fitting that it’s written by a librarian.
