In this enthusiastic, heartfelt, and sometimes humorous ode to bookshops and booksellers, 50 known authors pay tribute to the brick-and-mortar stores they love and often call their second homes.
Authors and bookstores are inextricably tied to one another. The relationship between an author's local store and that store's owners and staff can last for years, if not decades, and grow phenomenally close. Sometimes it's the author's local store that has supported him during the first uncertain days of his career. It's the place an author relies upon for word of new releases or a keen recommendation of an obscure work or an up-and-coming writer. The bookstore is a place of community for an author who spends her time pursuing what is generally a solitary existence.
"My Bookstore" collects the stories, praise, and words of thanks, for stores across the U.S. and around the world, in 50 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 idiosyncrasies, and little-known secrets and legends. Fifty black-and-white line drawings illustrate each shop's front door or distinguishing features.
