Waterstones

Cut Short, Road Closed and Dead End at Waterstones in Guildford where I signed 76 books today. Who says we don't love our bookshops?

That's good news, and congratulations. Today I just learned that L'Échange, a second hand bookstore where I used to go very often when I lived in Montreal, was back in 1972 the setting of a particularly violent murder. I thought about you.

Fantastic to see all three books on the shelf together and displayed so prominently. Love it!

Leigh Russell said...

Thanks, Helen. It's a great photo - 'Crime we love' ! We know what they mean...

Pat said...

I've got my own display.
Loving 'Dead End'. I couldn't wait for my holiday:)

Leigh Russell said...

I'm so glad you're enjoying it, Pat, and thank you for letting me know. I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I am not very far in the chapter, but basically the key witness in the murder if an anti-maffia politician and social activist in Sicily got murdered years later in Montreal, stabbed to death in his own restaurant, which is now a bookstore.

Leigh Russell said...

It sounds exciting, Guillaume.

Guillaume said...

It is. I might write something about it one day. Or feel free to use it yourself. If you make a book out of it, you owe me a beer (a dedication is not necessary).

Leigh Russell said...

So that's one undedicated beer...
