Why do we love bookshops so much? Book on, book lover!
Celebrating Bookshops of the world with collaborations with an award-winning cast of writers including Ali Smith, Pankaj Mishra, Elif Shafak and Daniel Kehlmann. In Browse Henry Hitchings asks 15 writers from around the world to consider the bookshops that have shaped them; each conjures a specific time and place. All these writers convey the joy and mystic of bookshops, while also making their vulnerability in recent times a recurrent theme. Have ever lost yourself in a bookshop, felt the world fall away as you took a book off the shelves? We all have at one time or another and this collection will carry you off to book nooks near, far, lost and imagined.
