This latest accession of the Alberto Manguel Papers complements and builds on the existing Manguel Papers held at the Fisher Library (see MS Colls 00405, 00425, 00444, 00477, 00522, 00541). It includes manuscripts for City of Words (the 2007 Massey Lecture delivered by Manguel, and published by House of Anansi Press) and All Men Are Liars, a novel begun in English in the early 1990s but eventually completed, and published, in Spanish as Todos los hombres son mentirosos. It also includes French translations, including manuscripts and page proofs, of the above three books. As well, the collection consists of the manuscripts, primarily in English and Spanish, for Manguel’s numerous writing projects in 2008-09, and material from various projects, including the 2009 TVO-produced television series “Empire of the Words.” The collection also includes correspondence – including letters and notes from writers Isabel Huggan, Anne Michaels, Rohinton Mistry, P.K. Page and Susan Swan – literary jury work, manuscripts sent to Manguel for review or reading, and an extensive collection of antiquarian book catalogues collected by Manguel.
