Unpacking My Library
A couple of years ago Jo Steffens brought out a book called Unpacking my Library: Architects and Their Books (Yale University Press, 2009), a wonderfully snoopy interesting look at the libraries of architects. Now, the very fine scholar Leah Price has brought out, in the same series, a book called Unpacking my Library: Writers and Their Books (Yale University Press, 2011). I want it!
Recently the FT did a piece on it, which you can read here.
This is library of James Wood and Claire Messud, in Cambridge Massachusetts.
