About the Author
Praise For The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop: A Memoir, a History…
“I cannot remember when I have read a book with such delight.” —Paul Yamazaki, City Lights Bookstore“When [Buzbee] describes walking into a bookstore, feasting his eyes on the walls lined with stock, gravitating to the tables stacked with new issues and then discovering some volume so irresistibly beautiful he just has to buy it, you realize that he just doesn’t love books, he’s besotted.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “In The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop, Lewis Buzbee recounts not only his personal experience of being a bookseller and a publisher sales rep, but also shares the history and inside world of bookselling. A beautiful book both inside and out.” —ERIC GESELL, Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops
