Product Details


“Brilliant… a little masterpiece.” – Ian Sansom, The Guardian Books of the Year

“I read it all in a single, enchanted sitting.” Bookseller Editor’s Choice

“It’s clear that Van Straten still searches for lost books, even as he recognises the futility of it. He likens the search to his childhood notions of the quest, to his longing to be “the hero who will be able to solve the mystery”.” — Guardian

“Fascinating… succinct and engaging.” — Never Imitate (blog)

“There’s real variety here. It’s hard not to get chills, raise smiles and be surprised by the talent on offer. Consider it a teaser trailer for some of your new favourite authors.” – Hits The Fan

“Charming, curious little volume… van Straten winningly demonstrates how these books ‘come back to life in us.'” — Country Life

“Engaging… instructing and entertaining… moving.” — Shiny New Books

“Delightful and absorbing… a little gem of a collection; recommended reading for any curious bibliophile.” - The National

“A private view of lost masterpieces, a particularly eloquent, lightly philosophical display of select, exceptional absences… a rewardingly, reassuringly old-fashioned quest.” - Bookanista
