Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Bob Geldof was carrying a bunch of sunflowers. He was wearing quite a smart suit. This was the time he was trying to win Paula back. He walked past the shop without looking in. I don't suppose many women are won back by secondhand 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.
