    When he was very young, Simon Garfield lusted after rare stamps, but could not afford them. When he was older, the passion reignited with almost ruinous results. His memoir begins at the door of his marriage guidance counsellor, stamp collection under his arm (he couldn't leave it in the car) and what follows is an examination of obsession and desire, as well as reflections on collecting in general and philately in particular.
