Another year, another set of revealing dairies by the Wigtown bookseller turned best-selling author and slight misanthrope. Customers play a key role in these humorous and hair-raising tales, including antiquarian porn-hunters, die-hard Arthurians, and children desperate to spend a penny and not too fussy about where they spend it. Meanwhile, Captain the bookshop cat looks on.
