A unique memoir that celebrates not just one life, but all of the lives connected through the past ownership of second-hand books.

About the Author

Josh Spero has had a lifelong love of the Classics, reading Latin and Greek at Oxford. He has been the editor of Spear's magazine since 2010, covering everything from finance and philanthropy to art and luxury. He is also the art critic for Tatler. Before Spear's he was at the Independent and has written for publications including the Guardian, The Times, the Sunday Times, and the Economist. He is a co-founder of theartsdesk.com - Britain's first critic-run arts review website - and has appeared on radio and TV around the world to discuss everything from finance to art.

Reviews

"Bold and beguiling ... The theme may deal with the ancients, but the book, a memoir with a fictional sensibility, the different lives reading like a collection of short stories, feels very contemporary. One has to applaud Spero's bullishness in taking on such a subject - and his infectious persuasion that, far from being something dusty and arcane, the classics are as vividly relevant now as then and can be enjoyed by people from any kind of background." * Daily Mail *
