In "Books: A Memoir," McMurtry gives us a lively look at the eccentrics who collect, sell, or simply lust after rare books. "Books" is like the best kind of diary full of wonderful anecdotes, amazing characters, great gossip, and shrewd observations about authors, book people, literature, and himself. At once chatty, revealing, and deeply satisfying, "Books" is, like its author, erudite, life-loving, and full of great stories.
William Dufris has been nominated nine times as a finalist for the APA's prestigious Audie Award and has garnered tweny-one Earphones Awards from "AudioFile" magazine, which also named him one of the Best Voices at the End of the Century. He has also acted on stage and television in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany.
"[McMurtry] expresses his belief that the love of books and the love of reading will never die. Anyone who reads this memoir will surely agree." ---Library Journal Starred Review
