Synopsis

More than a sequel, Slightly Chipped: Footnotes in Booklore is a companion piece for Used and Rare. Slightly Chipped details the warm and witty story of Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone's further explorations into the curious world of books. In Slightly Chipped, the Goldstones get hooked on the writings, correspondence and couplings of the Bloomsbury group; they track down Bram Stoker's earliest notes for Dracula; they put in a bid at a glamorous Sotheby's auction; they try out book collecting on the Internet; and they are introduced to hyper-moderns. Slightly Chipped is filled with the same anecdotes, esoterica and fun facts about the world of book collecting that so charmed readers of Used and Rare. The Goldstones have discovered new places to buy rare tomes and new eccentric personalities along the way, all presented in a style that Kirkus Reviews has called "evocative, compassionate and frequently hilarious."
