When a customer enters a bookstore, they do not always know what it is they are looking for. They may not know the title, author, etc of the book they are searching for. This wonderful opportunity for misunderstandings has given the author various anecdotes to collect. Filled with fun and quirky illustrations by the award-winning Brothers McLeod and featuring contributions from booksellers across the United States and Canada, as well as the author's native UK, Cosas raras que se oyen en las librerías is a celebration of bookstores, large and small, and of the brilliant booksellers who toil in those literary fields, as well as the myriad of colorful characters that walk through the doors every day. This irresistible collection is proof positive that booksellers everywhere are heroes.

Review Text

Este es un libro de anécdotas en el sentido más estricto del término. Cuando un cliente se acerca a una librería no siempre sabe qué quiere leer, y si lo sabe, no conoce exactamente el título del libro que busca, o el nombre del autor del libro... La oportunidad para el malentendido, la anécdota o el chiste está servida. Sin embargo, detrás de cualquier chiste se esconden verdades incuestionables, que en este caso tienen que ver con el 'despiste' de los clientes y la creciente incomprensión con respecto a esa pregunta tan antigua: «¿Qué es un libro?»
