Description
 
Libraries, with their miles and miles of books, are, for writers and readers alike, the magical portal to new worlds -- the source of terrors, delights, and pleasures aplenty. Here, noted author and librarian Michael Cart has gathered 19 enthralling stories about libraries and librarians. They range from a classic by Isaac Babel (”The Public Library”) to Jorge Luis Borges’s brilliant tale of a library stretching to infinity (”The Library of Babel”), and from Lorrie Moore’s contemporary masterpiece “Community Life” to Francine Prose’s “Rubber Life.” Saki, Ray Bradbury, Alice Munro and John Cheever -- among others -- are also represented in this unusual and enchanting collection.
