Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Ian Brown pushed his baby buggy into the shop but, like so many before him, couldn't negotiate his way through the boxes of books piled up all over. He backed out without looking at anything.

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.
