Bill Rees


Imagine a life of adventure, set in the world of second-hand books: finding a valuable first edition gathering dust on a Parisian pub shelf, opening bookshops in Montpellier, Paris, Bangor, trading books with a holidaying Ian McEwan or Alan Sillitoe, and running for the door after finding yourself trespassing in a wealthy Moroccan's private library...The Loneliness of the Long Distance Book Runner recounts the trials, joys and tribulations of selling second hand books. Full of quirky anecdotes and literary odds and ends, these unique insider's tales of the trade are sure to spark the imagination of every book- lover who picks it up.
