Paul Buckley: The 351 Books of Irma Arcuri

Is this gorgeous or what???? Photo is by Fredrik Broden. This is the story of a man who is looking for his mistress who has disappeared. She's left him 351 books with clues to her whereabouts, but the more he reads, the more it seems he has entered the stories and is living inside the books.

i like the feel of this and it would make me pick it up, but I don't really know what I am looking at...

A ribbon weaving through manually made holes in a book?? Interesting, but not revealing or hinting at anything within my range of understanding...

Paul rocks though!

Actually, Paul says he got the idea because there's a worm-eaten book that is part of the novel.
