“Time Was Soft There” by Jeremy Mercer.
I love this book because it allows me to wander the small corridors and staircases of a bookshop I love in Paris called “Shakespeare & Co. Written by Canadian journalist Jeremy Mercer who, like many other struggling writers, was lucky enough to live there for a time having left Vancouver on the run from both his job reporting on crime and a criminal who was out to get him. The history of the shop, it’s fascinating owner George Whitman and the many famous writers who called it home. A book to truly get lost in.
