Why do bookshops matter? How do they filter our ideas and literature? In this inventive and highly entertaining examination, Jorge Carrión takes his reader on a journey around the world, via its bookshops. His travels take him to Shakespeare & Co in Paris, Foyles in London, Green Apple Books in San Francisco. Librairie des Colonnes in Tangier, the Strand Book Store in New York, and provoke encounters with thinkers, poets, dreamers, revolutionaries and readers.
