Portraits in the Bookshop

The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry

"People with books can easily find a date on the title page verso." - The bookseller

 "When you read a great book, you don’t escape from life, you plunge deeper into it. There may be a superficial escape – into different countries, mores, speech patterns – but what you are essentially doing is furthering your understanding of life’s subtleties, paradoxes, joys, pains and truths. Reading and life are not separate but symbiotic." - Julian Barnes
