Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Angela Rippon, BBC newsreader and dancing sidekick of Morecambe and Wise enquired about selling some books. A week later I read in the Evening Standard that she had been mugged in a street just around the corner and had had her Rolex stolen.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
