It wasn't your orginary job interview. Not with questions like: "Some people pay their bills only when they have to, what about you?", and "Are there people in town you don't like?" But when town eccentric E (her full name) stood and announced she was giving her bookstore to the former salesman of Tie One On (a tie shop, not a bar), no one could have been more surprised. The books Matthew provides at Chapters and Verse, and the selections his customers make provide insight into the daily lives of the many characters in the small Florida town. These tales of interesting individuals, combined with the mystery of E's sudden disappearance, give readers a charming glimpse of the business of selling books in an "ordinary" small town. ( )
