    The Bookseller at the End of the World
    The Bookseller at the End of the World
    <b>A rich, immersive, funny and heartbreaking memoir of the charming bookseller who runs two tiny bookshops in the remote village of Manapouri in Fiordland, in the deep south of New Zealand.</b><br/><br/>'An extraordinary story.' Shaun Bythell, <i>The Diary of a Bookseller</i><br/><br/>Ruth Shaw weaves together stories of the characters who visit her bookshops, musings about favourite books, and bittersweet stories from her full and varied life.<br/><br/>She's sailed through the Pacific for years, been held up by pirates, worked at Sydney's Kings Cross with drug addicts and prostitutes, campaigned on numerous environmental issues, and worked the yacht <i>Breaksea Girl </i>with her husband, Lance.<br/><br/>Underlining all her wanderings and adventures are some very deep losses and long-held pain. Balancing that out is her beautiful love story with Lance, and her delightful sense of humour.<br/><br/>This will make you weep and make you laugh and make you want to read more books - and make you want to visit Ruth and her two wee bookshops.
