Abstract:

"For twenty years New York City's Books & Co. was one of the premier independent bookstores in the country."--BOOK JACKET. "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 habitues) 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."--Jacket.
