“Pays warm-hearted tribute to the reading, but also the shopping, the rifling, the obsessing, the complaining, the dreaming, the list-making, the shelf-organizing, and everything else book-lovers love to do.” – Elizabeth Weitzman, TheWrap

“A treat for anyone who appreciates the printed word.” – Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

D.W. Young’s elegant and absorbing documentary is a lively tour of New York’s book
world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers,
past and present: from the Park Avenue Armory’s annual Antiquarian Book Fair, where
original editions can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars; to the Strand and Argosy
bookstores, still standing against all odds; to the beautifully crammed apartments of
collectors and buyers. The film, executive produced by Parker Posey, features a range
of commentators, including Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Gay Talese, and a
community of dedicated book dealers and collectors who strongly believe in the wonder of the object and what it holds within.

We’ve partnered with several distributors to bring some of the great programming we are known for directly to your homes! Your rental of any of these films helps support the Gables Cinema while our doors are temporarily closed.
