About the Author

Alberto Manguel was born in Buenos Aires but moved to Toronto early on in his life. He now lives in France. He is the author of some hugely successful books including A Dictionary of Imaginary Places and A History of Reading. He is a Guggenheim Fellow.


"It is a work of staggering scope and erudition, packed with interesting information and arguments, and often beautifully written" William Skidelsky, The Spectator "[Manguel's] style is one of great warmth and allusiveness, ranging with ease across epochs and continents of literature' Steven Poole, The Guardian"
