I spent my last Sunday in New York in Park Slope, Brooklyn with lovely Lola. Good times. After lunch she whisked me smartly to Community Bookstore for book foraging. It’s one of those stores where every book entices, where the edit is so good and clever that to be honest, there was barely a book I didn’t want to take home with me.
The food section is great, the children’s frankly made me want to carry the lot home for my godchildren and the novels to find a spot to just hunker down and devour.
I settled for a first edition of Eugenides’ latest novel, The Marriage Code.
If you happen to find yourself in Park Slope (make a half day of it: go walk in Prospect Park, and then eat something delicious in one of the excellent cafes & restaurants around about), then do pop in. Just set yourself a budget first.
