Free (K) Among Booksellers:Tales Told in Letters to Howard Hodgkins - David Batterham

Little late in the day but I was really psyched to find this one - I've had the $20+ hardback on my wishlist for a long time and now it's suddenly on kindle...and free! Sweet.
[The preview does look messed up on the Look Inside feature, but it turned out just fine on my KK3.]

AMONG BOOKSELLERS Tales told in Letters To Howard Hodgkin by David Batterham. 89pp.

For thirty-five years (1970-2005) an antiquarian bookseller relates his adventures travelling in search of books through Europe in letters to a friend, the painter Howard Hodgkin. More about booksellers and their shops than about books.

Part diary, part memoir, some anecdotes and reflections; intended to amuse rather than inform! A bedside book.

“...a gallery of eccentrics with Batterham himself the most notable, drunk, often penniless... ...lucky Hodgkin to have received these letters ” Alan Bennett in London Review of Books

“Its addictive!” James Fergusson (he also chose it as one of his “books of the year “ in TLS)

“An extraordinary picture of the strange eccentric world of dealers with its chance encounters, crazed characters, its obsessions and its loneliness” Margaret Drabble

“wonderfully redolent, skirting Chatwin Country in favour of Simenon’s Maigret” William Feaver

“beguiling. I couldn’t put it down” Simon Hoggart in the Guardian
“completely fascinating and totally enjoyable” Howard Hodgkin

“this book is a cracking read” Amazon readers review
