That’s the bookstore I used to to disappear into while waiting for my movie to start when I was living in Toronto. I think, in three years, I bought one book there… “Mockingbird” by Walter Tevis. It’s been my favourite book since high school. It’s an award winning novel, but for some reason it’s very rare. So when I found it in Toronto I was ecstatic… yes, it’s that good.
Technical Stuff: That’s not actually Clint. It’s a blog-friend of mine I hung out with for a day while I was in the city for my brothers wedding. The book thing was her idea, I also have one of her being Andy Warhol that’s not nearly as cool. It was fun having a willing subject for a few hours, I also have some great shots of her in front of the CN Tower and on an escalator… this was with the digital C533. I love the clarity of the background and the light on her jacket.
I think it was three or six months after I loaned Mockingbird out to someone when I remembered I had loaned my favourite book to someone and then forgotten who they were. Looking back I’m pretty sure it was to the exceptionally hot daughter of a really hot friend of mine. But you’d think I’d remember something like that. If anyone has a copy I’ll pay for shipping… and if you’re anyone’s hot daughter and interested in science fiction novels about the importance of a literate society I’ll totally pay for dinner*.
*Interest in science fiction is so not a prerequisite.
