Reviewer:Jory John,San Francisco Chronicle"Bartlett immerses herself in unfamiliar territory with a willingness to learn everything she can about rare books and those who deal in them. You see the behind-the-scenes tinkering, how the narrative is meticulously put together through two years of diligent research. Bartlett shows the reader how to gather a story, building it fact by fact and highlighting it with interesting characters. She freely admits to the reader that she's also discovering the book-collecting world as she reports on it, visiting fairs, interviewing dealers and actually building her own collection."
