How do bookshops filter our ideas and literature? Why do they matter? In this inventive and highly entertaining extended love letter, Jorge Carrion takes his reader on a journey around the world, via its bookshops. From Shakespeare & Co in Paris, to Wells in Winchester; from Green Apple Books in San Francisco and Librairie des Colonnes in Tangier, to the Strand Book Store in New York, Carrion provokes encounters with thinkers, poets, dreamers, revolutionaries and readers.
