Description

Hilarious, wry, and charming tales of bookselling in remotest Scotland


 


"Among the most irascible and amusing bookseller memoirs I've read." --Dwight Garner, New York Times


 


The funny and fascinating memoir of Bythell's experiences at the helm of The Bookshop, Scotland's largest second hand bookstore--and the delightfully unusual staff members, eccentric customers, odd townsfolk and surreal buying trips that make up his life there.

Reviews

Funny and fascinating in equal measure - a must for all those of us who haunt the sepulchres where old books are laid to rest. * Anthony McGowan *
