Description
Nothing less than "a history of the 20th century through the prism of the world of books" (Rare Book News), this profile of the British book trade is based on in-depth interviews conducted over seven years by Sue Bradley for the British Library Sound Archive. The book trade underwent radical change throughout the century, and by the late 1990s most of the old family firms had been replaced by conglomerates, while the ending of the Net Book Agreement gave shops new freedom to compete by cutting prices. Through the voices of sales reps, shop assistants, and secretaries as well as editors, agents, and managers, this "entertaining, informative and often very funny" book (Literary Review) offers access to a culture often perceived as glamorous, incestuous, and exclusive.
