Description
For those bemoaning the rise of the e-book, this bound stack of printed pages—otherwise known as a book—offers spirited, never-before-published essays from a wide array of authors celebrating the hardcover or paperback they hold most dear—not necessarily because of its contents, but because of its significance as a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable object. Following the foreword by Ray Bradbury, Bound to Last features contributions by Chris Abani, Rabih Alameddine, Anthony Doerr, Louis Ferrante, Nick Flynn, Karen Joy Fowler, Julia Glass, Karen Green, David Hajdu, Terrence Holt, Jim Knipfel, Shahriar Mandanipour, Sarah Manguso, Sean Manning, Joyce Maynard, Philipp Meyer, Jonathan Miles, Sigrid Nunez, Ed Park, Victoria Patterson, Francine Prose, Michael Ruhlman, Elissa Schappell, Christine Schutt, Jim Shepard, Susan Straight, J. Courtney Sullivan, Anthony Swofford, Danielle Trussoni, and Xu Xiaobin.

"The perfect book for a lover of books. It's a work that will be cherished by those who enjoy not only the words of writers, but also the books from which they come. Each essay is well crafted and written with feeling as the writers share their personal connections to a special book in their life ... [and] will leave readers wanting to read the book discussed. At a time where so many are neglecting the art that is the book, it's wonderful to have 30 books that remind us that there is nothing like the real thing."—NYJournal of Books
