For 50 years, Rick Gekoski has been pursuing rare books and the people who write them. In this witty and engaging memoir, Gekoski recounts perusing D.H. Lawrence first editions in a slightly suspect Birmingham carpark, lunching with Graham Greene, and playing ping-pong with Salman Rushdie. A brilliant stroke of luck sees Sylvia Plath's personal copy of The Great Gatsby fall into Gekoski's lap, only for him to discover the perils of upsetting a Poet Laureate when Ted Hughes demands its return.
