BEHIND THE BOOKSHELVES

One founded a retail empire which still bucks high street trends; the other owns one of Scotland’s most cherished bookshops – today they tell their own tales. Tim Waterstone’s The Face Pressed Against a Window is the candid memoir of a savvy entrepreneur, while Shaun Bythell’s Confessions of a Bookseller transports readers to wonderful Wigtown and the store he runs in his sardonic style. Bookshop lovers, this one’s for you.
