I've known--vaguely--about book curses for quite a while, but what really piqued my interest was an article from Atlas Obscura a coworker shared recently, which mentions Drogin’s book. His writing style is personable and he does an excellent job of bringing history to life without resorting to scholarly jargon. History buffs, word nerds, and bibliophiles might want to give this one a try.
