Abstract

That every library is a magical place, a portal to our world of many worlds, is acknowledged and celebrated in The Night Library. Anna Robinson offers the reader a many-layered and rich response to the library as living entity. It is a roller-coaster ride through the classification system, an exploration of the ways in which books read us and live us; it takes us with verve and energy through labyrinths of volumes, and on to portraits of librarians themselves. Here is a wonderfully satisfying poem, alert to the many realities of the theme, inventive, and full of intriguing new perspectives. The Night Library is indeed a love song to libraries and librarians everywhere. – Penelope Shuttle
