Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Kate Moss looked bored in the doorway while her friend flicked through the racks. A passerby came up to her and said "I thought that you'd be taller". And then walked off without saying 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.
