by Shaun Bythell - £8.99 Profile Books Ltd (2020)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781788162319 | ISBN 10: 1788162315
Tricky customers, rude staff and everyone's favourite misanthropic bookseller: it's the second volume of the Sunday Times bestselling bookshop diaries, now available in paperback.
"Do you have a list of your books, or do I just have to stare at them?"
Shaun Bythell is the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland. With more than a mile of shelving, real log fires in the shop and the sea lapping nearby, the shop should be an idyll for bookworms.
Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what a shop is, home invasions during the Wigtown Book Festival and Granny, his neurotic Italian assistant who likes digging for river mud to make poultices.
