My Bookstore collects the stories, praise and words of thanks, for stores around the world, in 84 short essays written by our most beloved authors. Some of the pieces are sentimental, some are hilarious, all are unforgettable and inspiring.
Sidebars tell of the history of the store, it’s idiosyncracies and little-known secrets and legends.
Fifty black-and-white line drawings by Leif Parsons illustrate each shop’s front door or distinguishing features.
