Rick Gekoski has been hunting for rare books for over fifty years, and writing about the experience in several volumes of engaging, witty memoir. In his new book "Guarded by Dragons: Encounters with rare books and rare people", he likens the hunt to a mythical quest. In conversation with fellow book dealer Brian Phillips, Gekoski, a stellar storyteller and raconteur, discusses a life shaped by books: bought, sold and written. Along the way he has met, traded with, lunched with, annoyed and played ping-pong with such legendary figures as William Golding, Salman Rushdie, Graham Greene and Ted Hughes.
