Ms. Smith does it again.  Addressing a very serious concern about the defunding and closures of public libraries in Britain, she inventively juxtaposes fiction and non-fiction.  Quotes from people about what libraries mean to them are inserted between her faithfully artful short stories.  Not all of these stories are about libraries, but she slyly finds a way to include public libraries as a detail in each.  There was not a moment I did not enjoy this book.
