July 9 - Munro's

One of the happiest places on earth, Munro's Books, especially when visited between dinner at Spinnaker's and a post-dinner pint at the Irish Times. Bless/curse their sale tables, which today included:
  • Craig Childs, The Animal Dialogues: Uncommon Encounters in the Wild ($6.99) and
  • Ian Verchère, V0N 1B0: General delivery, Whistler BC, introduced by Douglas Coupland ($3.99, inexplicably, and even autographed).

Verchère's book looks at first glance like a good match for Coupland's own City of Glass, about Vancouver, which I enjoy very much, and it rather distracted some of our party at the Times. A good sign, I think.
