Anecdotes from behind the retail frontline

Michael Hutchence was wearing a skirt. "Have you got any books on aboriginal art mate?" We hadn't got any so he left without looking at anything else.

 

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
