Overview

SOME MEN STEAL BOOKS WHILE OTHERS WONDER WHY THEY BOTHER. A theft of rare books in a distant Ecuadorian library cannot be solved without uncovering the motives of the perpetrators. Some steal to eat, others, oddly, to save the past, vanishing as the world rushes into a digital, post-literate future. Four intriguing stories of men and women living literately, on journeys of the mind.

About the Author

Peter Briscoe has had the pleasure not only of living with books as a reader but also of making them his life's work as a librarian and writer. For more than 30 years he built library collections at two universities. A specialist in collection development, book acquisitions, special collections, and preservation, he directed efforts that led to the purchase or donation of 1.5 million volumes from all over the world on nearly all subjects. He loved his job but increasingly worried about the fate of books and reading in a digital, post-literate world.
