Quiet, Please by Scott Douglas
Book DescriptionFor most of us, librarians are the quiet people behind the desk, who, apart from the occasional shush, vanish into the background. But in Quiet, Please, McSweeneys contributor Scott Douglas puts the quirky caretakers of our literature front and center. With a keen eye for the absurd and a Kesey-esque cast of characters (witness the librarian who is sure Thomas Pynchon is Julia Robertss latest flame), Douglas takes us where few readers have gone before. Punctuated by his own highly subjective research into library history-from Andrew Carnegies Gilded Age to todays Afghanistan-Douglas gives us a surprising (and sometimes hilarious) look at the lives which make up the social institution that is his library.
Buy Quiet, Please book by Scott Douglas from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
