Description: "...The essays we have selected for this collection are...memories of reading: they are that dialogue with the mind of an absent other, that conversation both silent and shared, that moment when a reader seems to have found the perfect mate.... Many versions of lostness are investigated here. There is the book that disappears from the house during a divorce, and a lost manuscript that becomes a cult classic. There is the writer who commits suicide after finishing his work, and a reader who exhumes it from the remainder bin. There are the missing libraries of India and a book that survived in spite of the odds. The essays we've chosen come from all over the world and the books are of every kind.... When, for whatever reason, a book that means much is lost, there is the need to write a eulogy.... Laird Hunt quotes Borges on 'a certain class of objects, very rare, that are brought into being by hope.' A perfect description of this anthology about books we have loved and lost and loved again".

In Lost Classics you will find Margaret Atwood on sex and death in the scandalous Doctor Glas, first published in Sweden in 1905; Russell Banks on the off-beat travelogue Too Late to Turn Back by Barbara Greene -- the "slightly ditzy" cousin of Graham; Wayne Johnston on two lost classics of Newfoundland; Ronald Wright on William Golding; Caryl Phillips on Irish actor Michael Mac Liammoir's account of his experiences on the set of Orson Welles's Othello, and much, much more.
