Synopses & Reviews
Where else can you find an entertaining book filled with the miscellany of the publishing world? Readers can discover everything from the meager to the important in Bill Ott's The Back Page, part readers' advisory and part commentary on the world of books and literature, good and not so good.
Filled with humor and occasional defiance to the conventional, The Back Page delights readers with anecdotes, stories, quizzes, and a host of insights into what makes books what they are-those wonderful and magical sources of great thoughts. A compendium of the literal back pages of Booklist, a column that has been published in the magazine since 1991, readers will enjoy essays about books and authors, genre fiction, life at Booklist, and so much more.
