Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Noddy Holder, (MBE), smoked a cigarette and looked in the window. He was wearing a mustard yellow coat. I think he was more likely looking at his reflection in the glass than at any of the books.

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.
