Description: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Dust jacket reads: For twenty years New York City's Books & Co was one of the premier independent bookstores in the country. Stocking a wide range of fiction and nonfiction, both popular and hard-to-find, it was the kind of bookstore writers and readers dream about, a place where reading was an adventure, where writers congregated to share ideas, and where interesting discoveries were made. Bookstore is the story of this legendary institution and its determined founder, Jeannette Watson. With the help of the voices of such writers (and store habitue's) as Roy Blount Jr., Brendan Gill Calvin Trillin, Susan Cheever, Susan Sontag, Fran Lebowitz, and many more, Bookstore describes the inner workings of a great store and goes beyond the store's walls to explore the state of publishing and bookselling in a time when the very landscape of the written word has shifted radically. Lynne Tillman has given us a fascinating account of business, books, and writerly aspirations that is filled with intimate portraits and frank stories from the universe of readers and authors. Bookstore is a vital window into a world so many have fantasized about. Preface by Woody Allen. ------ 337 pages with index. This book and dustjacket are FINE/AS NEW (unread). Stated FIRST EDITION.
