Alberto Manguel is the award-winning author of numerous books celebrating the written word, including bestsellers A History of Reading, The Library at Night, and The Dictionary of Imaginary Places.
On Alberto Manguel: "The area which Alberto Manguel has mapped for himself is that of the eros of reading. He celebrates the diversities of desire-tempestuous, hidden, intermittent, lapsed-which relate us to a literary text."-George Steiner, The Guardian "[Alberto Manguel's] imagination is supple and generous, and his work is full of surprises."-A. S. Byatt, The Washington Post
