Missing Books: A Wander through One Man's Library by Brian Harris

Missing Books 

‘Missing Books’ is a trip through the contents of the author's bookshelves, past and present - from children’s books to science fiction, from poets ancient and modern to ground-breaking forms of biography, from literary humour to books on life’s deeper issues.

He describes how the writings of an English rope maker helped bring about two of the world’s greatest revolutions, and how a book moved Abraham Lincoln to take up the cause of emancipation. The book touches on a host of other issues, including the importance of reading to the growing child, the inconvenience of over-weighty volumes, and when even the best writers resort to plagiarism.

Brian Harris OBE is a Queen’s Counsel who turned to the pen on retirement.
