Show me a library lover (or writer or publisher or reader) who can resist this book! I was hooked from the opening cartoon in which librarians accomplished their goal of world dominance: “with superior organizational skills they quickly seized power. Opponents were mercilessly shushed.” Throughout uncover the strange rituals, dark secrets, and eccentric denizens of the world of literature. Tom Gauld, whose work appears in the New Yorker, has a joyously hilarious take on our world of books.
