    Charmingly written in his signature engaging erudite style, Alberto Manguel examines how literary characters can have changing identities, and can suddenly shift from behind their conventional stories to teach us about the complexities of love, loss, and life.

    In this personal reckoning with his favorite characters, including Jim from Huckleberry Finn, Phoebe from The Catcher in the Rye, Job and Jonah from the Bible, Quasimodo, the Hippogriff, Little Red Riding Hood, Captain Nemo, Hamlet’s mother, and Dr. Frankenstein’s Monster, the author shares his unique powers as a reader, encouraging us to establish our own unique literary relationships. An intimate introduction and Manguel’s own “doodles” complete this delightfully magical book.
