Sobre l'autor

Eugene Field was born in Saint Louis, Missouri , September 2, 1850 . He's an American writer, best known for poetry for children and for humorous essays. After the death of his mother he was raised by a cousin in Amherst, Massachusetts. Field briefly attended various colleges in Massachusetts and mostra'n més Missouri. He tried acting and studying law. He then set off for a trip through Europe only to return to the U.S. six months later penniless. Field then worked as a journalist for the Gazette in Saint Joseph, Missouri in 1875. The same year he married Julia Comstock. The couple had 8 children. Field soon rose to become city editor of the Gazette. From 1876 through 1880 Field lived in Saint Louis, where he was an editorial writer. He then took a job as managing editor of the Kansas City, Missouri Times, then from 1881 began two years as managing editor of the Tribune of Denver, Colorado. In 1883 he moved to Chicago, Illinois where he wrote a humorous newspaper column called Sharps & Flats for the Chicago Daily News. Field first started publishing poetry in 1879, when his book Christian Treasures appeared. Over a dozen more volumes followed, and he became well known for his light-hearted poems for children; perhaps the best known is "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod". Several of his poems were set to music with commercial success. Eugene Field died in Chicago at the age of 45. His former home in Saint Louis is now a museum. A memorial to him, a statue of the "Dream Lady" from his poem, "Rock-a-by-Lady" was erected in 1922 at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Bibliomanía: «Pasión de tener muchos libros raros o los pertenecientes a tal o cual ramo, más por manía que para instruirse». Diccionario de la Lengua Española.

He aquí la historia de un viejo y peculiar coleccionista de libros, en la Norteamérica de finales del siglo XIX, rodeado de personajes tan singulares como entrañables: sus amigos, el juez Methuen y el doctor O’Rell; su hermana, la señorita Susan; sus amores de juventud, Captivity Waite, Fanchonette… Una novela repleta de humor, encanto e inteligencia sobre los deleites, aventuras y desventuras de la bibliomanía. Pero también sobre la alegría de vivir, contagiosa en todas sus páginas.

«Cuando el juez Methuen tiene ganas de chanza y quiere reírse de mí, me pregunta si he olvidado la época en la que estuve poseído por un espíritu de renovación y juré solemnemente no comprar más libros… Mi relación con los libreros cubre un período tan largo y ha sido tan íntima que incluso en medio de una vasta multitud, no tendría dificultad en determinar quiénes son libreros y quiénes no. Porque, al tratar con los libros, llega un momento en que estos hombres acaban pareciéndose a su mercancía, no sólo en su aspecto sino también en su conversación. Mi librero ha habitado tantos años en su rincón que habla al estilo antiguo y tiene el aspecto sencillo y atractivo de una antigua y sólida encuadernación; y para deleite de los entendidos en olores, desprende ese aroma a moho y tabaco combinados que al verdadero bibliófilo le resulta más agradable que todos los perfumes de Arabia. He estudiado el oficio con tanto interés que con sólo clavar la vista en un librero puedo decir con certeza qué tipo de libros vende.»
