The BookSeller and Other Stories by Peter Briscoe
SOME MEN STEAL BOOKS WHILE OTHERS WONDER WHY THEY BOTHER. A theft of rare books in a distant Ecuadorian library cannot be solved without uncovering the motives of the perpetrators. Some steal to eat, others, oddly, to save the past, vanishing as the world rushes into a digital, post-literate future. Four intriguing stories of men and women living literately, on journeys of the mind.
