Book Summary:

Once the Old House Bookshop is up and running, Florence is subjected to the hilarious perils of running a subscription library, training a 10-year-old assistant, and obtaining the right merchandise for her customers. Men favor works “by former SAS men, who had been parachuted into Europe and greatly influenced the course of the war; they also placed orders for books by Allied commanders who poured scorn on the SAS men, and questioned their credentials.” Women fight over a biography of Queen Mary. “This was in spite of the fact that most of them seemed to possess inner knowledge of the court–more, indeed, than the biographer.” But it is only when the slippery Milo North suggests Florence sell the Olympia Press edition of “Lolita” that Florence comes under legal and political fire.
