A NEW YORK TIMES NEW & NOTEWORTHY BOOK
Good bookshops are questions with out solutions. They are locations that provoke you intellectually, encode riddles, shock and provide challenges … A lovely labyrinth the place you possibly can’t get misplaced: that comes later, at dwelling, whenever you immerse your self within the books you may have purchased; lose your self in new questions, figuring out you can find solutions.
Picking up the place the broadly praised Bookshops: A Reader’s History left off, Against Amazon and Other Essays explores the growing pressures of Amazon and different new applied sciences on bookshops and libraries. In essays on these important social, cultural, and mental areas, Jorge Carrión travels from London to Geneva, from Miami’s Little Havana to Argentina, from his personal well-loved childhood library to the rosewood cabinets of Jules Verne’s Nautilus and the modern areas that characterize South Korea’s bookshop renaissance. Including interviews with writers and librarians—together with Alberto Manguel, Iain Sinclair, Luigi Amara, and Han Kang, amongst others—Against Amazon is equal components a celebration of books and bookshops, an autobiography of a reader, a travelogue, a love letter—and, most urgently, a manifesto in opposition to the corrosive affect of late capitalism.
