A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for… (1995)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805061762, Paperback)What a delightful book about books and people who love books! As a second generation bibliophile, a possible bibliomane who had several people move out of my house a year ago because they erroneously believed that my books were taking over the household, and a devout employee of "Earth's Biggest Bookstore," I can vouch that Basbanes accurately describes the glorious role of book collectors as archivists of human knowledge, and -- in continual counterpoint -- sometimes pathologically obsessed book junkies.
