D.W. Young’s elegant and absorbing documentary is a lively tour of New York’s book world,
populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers, past and
present: from the Park Avenue Armory’s annual Antiquarian Book Fair, where original editions
can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars; to the Strand and Argosy bookstores, still
standing against all odds; to the beautifully crammed apartments of collectors and buyers.
The film, executive produced by Parker Posey, features a range of commentators, including
Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Gay Talese, and a community of dedicated book dealers and
collectors who strongly believe in the wonder of the object and what it holds within.
