It’s Independent Booksellers Week from 30th June to 7th July.
Thanks very much to my local bookshop for supporting my book.
And to Goldsboro Books in Cecil Court, off the Charing Cross Road (still famous for its bookshops, even if the one called ‘Author’ actually only sells shoes), for offering signed first editions of The Painted Bridge.
Here’s to local and independent bookshops everywhere. If we don’t use them, we will lose them.
