“A bookseller in Wigtown, Scotland, recounts a year in his life as a small-town dealer of secondhand books….Irascibly droll and sometimes elegiac, this is an engaging account of bookstore life from the vanishing front lines of the brick-and-mortar retail industry. Bighearted, sobering, and humane.”—Kirkus Reviews

A bestseller in the UK and a memoir every bit as warm and welcoming as a visit to your very favorite bookstore. Inside a stone-faced Georgian townhouse on the Wigtown highroad, jammed with more than 100,000 books and one portly shop cat, Shaun Bythell manages the ups and downs of Scotland's largest used bookshop with a sharp eye and even sharper wit.

    best part of the second-hand book trade, and probably of book-collecting too: finding and handling something rare and important
