Publisher's Synopsis

Mark the passing of the days with this delightfully illustrated Almanac.

Each date is assigned a literary connection. Book lovers will find diary entries and extracts from letters, the narrative twists and transformative moments in their favourite novels, read about prestigious awards and creative squabbles, and the delivery of manuscript, first publication and performance. The book draws on the vast collections of the British Library to find new, surprising and entertaining ways to celebrate each day.

It builds on the successes of The Book Lover’s Bucket List and The Book Lover’s Joke Book. Each month opens with a list of significant births and closes with a selection of pertinent last words, while entries are international in scope and range across history from the great classics to modern authors.
