Lovers of the printed book,Bound to Last 30 Writers by Sean Manning arise! Thirty of today’s top writers are here to tell you you’re not alone.
In Bound to Last,an amazing array of authors comes to the passionate defense of the printed book with spirited, never-before-published essays celebrating the hardcover or paperback they hold most dear—not necessarily because of its contents, but because of its significance as a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable object. Whether focusing on the circumstances behind how a particular book was acquired, or how it has become forever “bound up” with a specific person, time, or place, each piece collected here confirms—poignantly, delightfully, irrefutably—that every book tells a story far beyond the one found within its pages.
In addition to a foreword by Ray Bradbury, Bound to Last features original contributions by:
Courtney Sullivan, Anthony Swofford, Danielle Trussoni, and Xu Xiaobin
