In the process he reveals some of the principles that matter to him as a writer and pays tribute to the writers— such as Walser Perec Sterne and DeLillo—who have been important to him as both a reader and an author At the heart of the text like a brightly lit room in a field of debris stands Vladislavic’s Loss Library itself the shelves laden with books that have never been written On the page Vladislavic tells us every loss may yet be recovered An extraordinary book about both the nature of novels and the process of writing The Loss Library will ap.
