Once visited by the likes of Charles Dickens, William Thackeray, and George Eliot, the London Library is a maze of books - a jumble of first editions and forgotten texts. For Tony, it is a refuge from the failure his life has become - and it is about to be invaded by a destructive old friend.
Adam is a world-renowned novelist who spends so much time writing articles and appearing in documentaries that it seems impossible he actually has time to write books. He visits the library to research a nearly-forgotten English poet, Francis Youlgreave, who just happens to be Tony's obsession. Tony has staked his career on the long-dead clergyman, and will do whatever it takes to keep Adam from stealing his research. In this ghostly library, scholarly conflict is anything but academic.

Fun Short Story - Would have made a nice novel
Any additional comments?
A very fun, short listen. I love this author and his book The American Boy. I also enjoy biblio mysteries, and this one is enjoyable. I could see this as a book.
