Hallelujah for knowledge and for the honor of language and ideas. And books. For Jefferson’s glorious library full of Cicero and Spinoza and Aeschylus and Thomas More and books on bees<br /><br /><br /><br />
and trees and harpsichords all intact in the Library of Congress.

And speaking of Shakespeare & Company, the proprietor of this extraordinary landmark of a bookshop, George Whitman, patron saint of down and out writers in Paris, died on December 14th, 2011, two days after his 98th birthday. Jeremy Mercer, a Canadian writer who was once down on his luck in Paris, found refuge, solace, a bed and a job at the shop. He wrote a wrote a very entertaining book, ‘TimeWas Soft There’, on his time spent at this venerable, eccentric, wonderful place. Watch Sylvia Whitman (George’s daughter and manager of the shop) give an overview of Shakespeare & Co here
