Goldsboro Books is a unique and rare store. Housed in a quiet pedestrianised street just of Shaftesbury Avenue, it sells only hardback and mainly contemporary first editions – although scour shelves and glass cabinets and you’ll also find a treasure trove of bookish gems. Stepping inside is what visiting a bookstore should be, entering another world, a world lined with books where you have time and space to browse and the staff are motivated by a genuine love of books.
Owner David Headley is one of the greatest champions of books and authors and I’ve been saying I am honoured to be included in this collection of short stories to mark the store’s 21st anniversary but that’s downplaying it really. I’m absolutely thrilled to be between the covers with such range of illustrious writers. It makes me smile every tie I catch sight of this lovely cover.
Out on 30th September, signed, numbered limited editions can be pre-ordered here
