Book Description HTML
When a beautiful young woman walks into Mike Garrat's bookshop, little does he know she's about to ruin his life, but since his life's not that great anyway maybe this isn't such a bad thing. A sworn bachelor, Mike recalls his past loves, careful always to avoid love in the present for fear of messing it up. Again. Literary and otherworldly, he takes comfort in the nostalgic contemplation of a past that probably never existed. But then anything's better than the ruin of the real world he witnesses on the other side of his shop window. Put it that way, could it turn out, she's the best thing that ever happened to him? I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
