The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap
A Memoir of Friendship, Community, and the Uncommon Pleasure of A Good BookLarge Print - 2012
A story of beating bad odds with grace, ingenuity, good books, and single malt, this memoir chronicles two bibliophiles discovering unlikely ways in which daily living and literature intertwine. Their customers -- Bob the Mad Irishman, Wee Willie, and The Lady Who Liked Romances, to name a few - come to the shop looking for the kind of interactive wisdom electronics don't spark. There, they find friendship, community, and the uncommon pleasure of a good book in good company.
The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap will make you want to run to the local bookstore, and curl up in an arm chair with a treasure in bound pages.
