Description: Did you know that Walt Whitman was fired from a government job because his boss found Leaves of Grass immoral? Or that the most stolen books in the United States are the Bible and The Joy of Sex? In this fascinating look into the business of books, John Maxwell Hamilton-a longtime journalist and public radio commentator-provides a witty and rich history sure to delight every bibliophile. From the early days when monks laboriously hand-copied texts to the recent tidal wave of movie tie-ins, Hamilton gives a lively overview of the state of the industry today. Peppered with quirky, spicy tidbits, Casanova Was a Book Lover is indispensable for book enthusiasts who want to know the naked truth about reading, writing, and publishing.
