He is the consummate bibliophile and makes his living writing about books, book spaces, and book history. Into the Looking-Glass Wood is similar in erudition and style but, much like the book from which he takes its name, its topics are all over the place.

And I believe that sometimes, beyond the author's intentions and beyond the reader's hopes, a book can make us better and wiser.
