Joe QueenanThose intrigued by such oddities, or even practical sorts jumping the gun on Christmas shopping for the literati, will surely find Stuart Kelly's Book of Lost Books: An Incomplete History of All the Great Books You'll Never Read worth a gander. An absolute joy, if a mite esoteric and demanding, Kelly's book is as appealing for what it is not as for what it is. In an age of slapdash laundry lists of places to see before you die, or dining establishments to visit before you leave Albuquerque, The Book of Lost Books is a work of great passion, insight and scholarship.
