book unknown

Borders is liquidating. To mark the event, I went browsing for a couple hours in Carroll & Carroll Booksellers. I’m in a cafe across the street right now. In my hands is a copy of John Barth’s Lost in the Funhouse, a collection of short stories from the ’60s. The book was recommended by the proprietor after I told her that I came in to buy a book whose existence I was unaware of. I nearly walked out with Walser, which would have defeated my purpose. Long live the independent bookstore, in whichever form it assumes.
