Provenance: Tales from a Bookshop

Working in a secondhand bookshop in the west of Scotland is seen by some as the ideal place to work. Provenance opens up that myth and brings to life the characters who enter the shop and the books that fill the shelves.

Located in an old west of Scotland town, hanging on to its once proud identity with its fingertips, ‘Cloisters Bookshop’ functions as an oasis of culture and quirky authenticity. The glorious gallimaufry of scenes, sketches and stories assembled here arise from, and are shaped by, the bookshop’s valiant setting and rich characters. Differing thus from other contributors to the genre, this book will make you both smile and sigh and ultimately dissuade you of the belief that it is only bookselling that goes on in a bookshop.
