A geography of literature …

… No book can tell you about all books, but this one comes close. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

What is very obvious is that Orthofer’s intimate engagement with books has resulted in this crystal clear understanding of the manner in which literature may be mapped. His organisation underlines the close proximity between literature and socio-political factors, a link which is often denied by many.
 Well, I obviously have to get this book, because at my age there's a lot of stuff I'm just not going to live to get to.
