Anecdotes from the Retail Frontline

A smirking Terence Stamp bought a copy of one his own autobiographies. I wondered whether he did this at every secondhand bookshop he walked past. There are certainly plenty of copies of his book around.

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.
