White Spines : Confessions of a Book Collector, Paperback / softback Book

White Spines : Confessions of a Book Collector Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Editor's Choice, The BooksellerA mix of memoir and narrative non-fiction, White Spines is a book about Nicholas Royle's passion for Picador's fiction and non-fiction publishing from the 1970s to the end of the 1990s.

It explores the bookshops and charity shops, the books themselves, and the way a unique collection grew and became a literary obsession.

Above all a love song to books, writers and writing.
