Description
 
Michael Cart (ed & in). Libraries are created worlds. Row upon row of shelves holding miles of books arranged meticulously, they combine a tale out of The Arabian Nights with the terrors of a card-filled bureaucracy from Kafka. For many budding writers & bookworms the public library was the magic portal to new worlds. Here are 19 short stories -- the cream of 20th-cent. short fiction -- about libraries & librarians. They range from a classic by Isaac Babel (“The Public Library”) to Jorge Luis Borge’s tale about a library stretching to infinity (“The Library of Babel”), to such contemporary masters as Ray Bradbury, Alice Munro, Francine Prose, Lorrie Moore, & others. Lunacy, love, obsession, & the joy of reading are all gathered in a volume that is both desirable & long overdue.
