Following each entry are rich endnotes that include publication dates and preferred editions, other books by the same author, related books to try, and listings of worthy adaptations, including movies and audio books. In total, more than six thousand titles by thirty-five hundred authors are recommended. Hardbound, 960 pages. 9 1/2" H x 7" W x 2" D. (3 1/2 lbs.)
