Shakespeare & Co. as a Drop-In Shelter

Author Jeremy Mercer, who literally lived in a bookstore, Shakespeare & Company in Paris, talks about the experience with Becky Kraemer.

The author, after a stint as a crime reporter here in Canada where Mercer was attacked by one of his sources, went nearly penniless to Paris, ending up sleeping, eating and doing chores at the famous bookstore Shakespeare & Co. for 3 months. At the end of 2005, Mercer did a whirlwind tour of independent bookstores in the US late last year. He praises used bookdealers, who are a community asset but must struggle to survive in a difficult market.
