The Book of Lost Books

An Incomplete History of All the Books You'll Never Read
by Stuart Kelly - Find out more about the author

 

eBook also available from the iBookstore

The sequel to The Odyssey? Sylvia Plath’s second novel? Stuart Kelly provides a wry and erudite account of books destroyed, misplaced, never finished, or never even begun – from ancient Greek and Arabic masters through Shakespeare, Dante and Hemingway right up to the present day. The breadth of Kelly’s knowledge and his enthusiasm impressed critics in the UK and the USA.

Stuart Kelly was born in 1972. He studied English at Oxford. He is the Literary Editor of Scotland on Sunday and a freelance critic and writer. He lives in Edinburgh with his wife.
