From the back cover:
Coffee, volcanoes, pigs on trial, talking trees, a woman pregnant with rabbits, the social life of geometry, a cat called Jeoffry, polyglots, polymaths, painted smiles, lost Edens, lepidopterous spying, monkey-eating poets, imaginary museums, an invented language drowning in umlauts, and a disgruntled Proust and frustrated Flaubert... just some of the eclectic delights to be found in these selected essays from the first three years of The Public Domain Review.

Spread across six themed chapters – Animals, Bodies, Words, Worlds, Encounters and Networks – the book includes a total of thirty-four essays from a stellar line up of contributors, including Jack Zipes, Frank Delaney, Colin Dickey, George Prochnik, and Julian Barnes; and features 146 illustrations, more than half of which are newly sourced especially for this book.
