Ottawa. Published Privately by the Author. 2010. 2nd Edition. Soft cover. 8vo, 21.5cm, second edition, [vii]29p., introduction, illustrated wraps, new. ". . . your book lets us, Liam, Clive and me, see this place through the eyes of someone finding his or her way in here for the first time. Many of the details you describe are so familiar to us we barely see them. So it gives me a sense of how we are being perceived. I also feel [that] the grains of sand that have accumulated into this bookstore over the past forty-one years, good and bad, humble and great, represented by this building, will now suddenly be blown away. Your book gives us all a sense of that place, my place, and of a time past. 'Cast a cold eye . . .' Thank you." Patrick McGahern, PatrickMcGahern Books Inc.
