La biblioteca de noche is an emotive, entertaining and erudite immersion, encouraged by curiosity, on the attraction of those places we call libraries and man's eagerness to collect, in this case books. Alberto Manguel shows us in this work his passionate love for them and for those spaces, mythical in some cases, that have housed them over the centuries. He reveals the pleasure of the adventure he feels when he gets lost among shelves crammed with books "with the superstitious certainty that a hierarchy of letters or numbers will one day lead me to the promised destination". Those delights that are hidden among the shelves and between the pages, in black on white; places in which to find consolation.
