Fabulous Monsters: Dracula, Alice, Superman, and Other Literary Friends

by Alberto Manguel; ill. Alberto Manguel (Yale University Press, 2019)

Manguel_Fabulous Monsters

A series of non-fiction vignettes, each of which takes a literary figure as its starting point. Manguel is widely read and lets his intellect wander, musing about this and that and not very much. His insights are engaging enough in small doses.

The Library at Night

by Alberto Manguel (Alfred A Knopf, 2006)

Manguel_Library at Night

A sprawling, erudite collection of musings vis-à-vis libraries, literature and the human condition. Manguel clearly lives for books. He waxes lyrical and makes interesting connections. The Library at Night is a sleepy sort of read but contains no small number of curiosities.
