en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 14 Nov 2017
"Bookshops is the best kind of biblio-mystery, in which a cultivated and civilised detective guides us through the labyrinth of the world's stores, stopping to talk for a while, before plunging off on the next fascinating diversion. Jorge Carrión brings page-turning excitement to the extended essay form." —Iain Sinclair
Jorge Carrión collects bookshops: from Gotham Book Mart and the Strand Bookstore in New York City to City Lights Bookshop and Green Apple Books in San Francisco and all the bright spots in between (Prairie Lights, Tattered Cover, and countless others). In this thought-provoking, vivid, and entertaining essay, Carrión meditates on the importance of the bookshop as a cultural and intellectual space. Filled with anecdotes from the histories of some of the famous (and not-so-famous) shops he visits on his travels, thoughtful considerations of challenges faced by bookstores, and fascinating digressions on their political and social impact, Bookshops is both a manifesto and a love letter to these spaces that transform readers’ lives.

Jorge Carrión is a writer and literary critic. His published works include essays, novellas, novels and travel writing, and his articles have appeared in National Geographic and Lonely Planet Magazine.
