Where Books Fall Open: A Reader's Anthology of Wit & Passion
Bascove ~ David R. Godine 06/2001[I] 1st Edition
Hardback/Cloth ~ 216 x 140 mm. 150pp


This is a book about books, about the pleasures, passions, and rewards of reading, about authors who are dedicated to the act of writing, and readers who are devoted to the joys of words in the right order. Funny, moving, and beautiful, it features an eclectic selection from some of the world's finest writers, as well as 16 full-colour paintings by artist and editor Bascove. Both its contents and its production are guaranteed to satisfy the most demanding and discriminating tastes.

From Italo Calvino's meditation on the difficulties of selecting a title in a bookstore, to Virginia Woolf's essay on the joys of the 'common reader', from Cervantes's depiction of the burning of Don Quixote's books to Anne Fadiman's musings on the courtly (and carnal) ways to mark one's passage through the terrain of a text, Where Books Falls Open testifies, in words and image, to the strength and endurance of the written word.

With selections from the pens of Donald Hall, Joyce Carol Oates, Calvin Trillin, Robert Pinsky, Jane Austen, Robertson Davies, Dorothy Parker, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Mary Gordon, to name just a few, and adorned with Bascove's gorgeous and inimitable paintings, this elegant book has something for anyone interested in the nature of writing and the pleasures of reading.
