Description
The author owns The Bookshop, Wigtown – Scotland’s largest second-hand bookshop. In these wry and hilarious diaries he provides insight into the trials and tribulations of life in the book trade, from struggles with eccentric customers to wrangles with his own staff. He takes us with him on buying trips to old estates and auction houses, recommends books and evokes the rhythms and charms of small-town life, always with a sharp and sympathetic eye.

Laconic, droll, opinionated and unconvincingly misanthropic . . . Wigtown’s Pepys. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
