‘A Pound of Paper’ by John Baxter

An uproarious, delightful series of confession by a book addict

A Pound of Paper
Brimming with Nick Hornby nerdness, John Baxter’s book concerns his rampant addiction to buying, collecting and hoarding rare books. Tracing his nascent interests in bibliophilia as a teenager, to orgies with porn produers and learning the trade of rare book collecting from drug-addicted, booze-swilling, international criminal runners and failed rock stars, Baxter provides the reader with a superb insight into the bizzare, fetishistic world of book mania.
In turn funny, touching and bizzare, this book is a must for anyone who suffers from the addiction of collecting. A must.
