This book is a farrago of literary trivia, a treasure trove of obscure and irresistible facts, definitions, lists, and quotations that touch on every aspect of books, including their authors, publishers, printers, collectors, critics, pundits, readers, and enemies. Under headings that explore the entire history of bibliomania from "The Invention of Paper" to "Some Horror Writer's Official Web Sites," the entries in Bibliotopia provide the insatiably curious reader with a delightfully desultory literary education, the kind of beguiling literary gossip and information one might overhear at a cocktail party on Parnassus.
