The Grandest Bookshop in the World is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of The Grandest Bookshop in the World
This customer was making the most of the invitation. His slender fingers flipped the pages of a volume bound in red. Pearl reached into her bag of peppermints. A specialty of the Book Arcade’s lolly shop, they turned your breath to a frosty breeze, better than ice cream for cooling off. The confectioner made them by writing spells into the sugar dough while it was still molten flowing liquid. Pearl popped one into her mouth and glanced at the stranger again. Perhaps he didn’t feel the heat. People came from all over the world to Victoria, and from all over Victoria to Cole’s Book Arcade. After all, this was 1893: trains and steamships could carry a person to any country in the world these days. He might have been from Ceylon, or Brazil, or Egypt – somewhere that would make late March in Melbourne feel like the first day of spring.
Pearl Cole lived in a bookshop.
When most people said that, they meant that they spent so much time at the library, the theatre, or their workplaces that they felt as if they lived there. But for Pearl, this was not the case. She did not spend her life in bookshops in general. She lived in a flat at the top of Cole’s Book Arcade, 299 Bourke Street, under the rainbow sign that could be seen from as far away as Parliament House. And although it meant she had to explain herself often, Pearl would not have given up living in a bookshop for any price. For one thing, living in a bookshop allowed her to read lots of interesting books
