“Rare Book School”

Featuring Jesuits, snarky comments about Umberto Eco and The Ninth Gate, and lots of rare book fun.

Fr. Suarez’s course on the History of the Book includes a boxload of Harlequins, because romance novels rule today’s book and ebook market; and he tells his students to “Follow the money” if they want to understand books throughout history, as well as now.

Special bonus: The picture section includes UVa’s Victorian “Authors” card deck of American and English women writers.
