To Peter & Nancy
The Attic Owl
I found this book at my hometown’s largest annual booksale, and was immediately tickled by it – a collection of short stories from a Kingston author, found in a city on the far west coast of B.C., dedicated to a couple in Halifax. I’ve never found a title more fitting: this book itself doesn’t seem to be most places as much as it is every place. It’s crazy to me to think that this book may have travelled more in its life than some people.
I can’t find evidence that this bookshop still exists – do you happen to be familiar with the Attic Owl?
