Time Was Soft There
Time Was Soft There
A Paris Sojourn at Shakespeare & Co.
Jeremy Mercer



This is for all travelers of the world. Mercer captures the essence of living and working at the historic bookstore Shakespeare and Co. These tales of laughter and woe will entertain you and make you want to travel – or at least visit Paris and meet the immortal George Whitman, and hope he invites you to tea. –-Recommended by Don, City Lights Books

In 1999, Jeremy Mercer fled Canada for Paris with nothing but his meagre savings. Nearly homeless, he met George Whitman, owner of Shakespeare & Co. In exchange for work in the legendary bookstore, Whitman allows struggling writers to live in and around the shelves. He offered Jeremy a cot. Here begins a charming story of Paris, passion, and, of course, books.
