A lucid and scholarly reflection on the relationship we establish with books from all imaginable points of view.

What criterion presupposes the ordering and arrangement of the books? According to Calasso, whoever tries to order his library must recognize and transform the mental map of his preferences and passions, facing surprises and not expecting clear solutions.

Far from decreeing a method of bibliographic classification, the author offers an intimate and personal vision of bibliophile. Scholarly and fascinating, How to Organize a Library is a lesson not just in ordering, but in how to edit, write, buy, sell and, above all, read books.
