ABOUT
THE BOOK

In a small town in the mountains, a young boy is given a suitcase filled with battered old books. So begins a lifelong pursuit of the elusive creature known as the logogryph.
Describing imaginary books and alternate realities, Wharton explores the mysterious alchemy called reading, and along the way summons a cast of characters that includes
duelling margin scribblers, a dislodged protagonist, and an unforgettable family that becomes one man’s mythology.
