The library borrowings of Joyce, Hemingway, Mansfield and Stein

From Karyn Hay Presents: Queen's Birthday, 11:30 am on 1 June 2020

For twenty years, a small bookshop, Shakespeare & Co ran a lending library in Paris with a very famous clientele at a time English language books were hard to find in Paris. The shop closed in 1941, but now a project run out of Princeton University has published the lending lists of borrowers such as Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce and Gertrude Stein. Professor Joshua Kotin of Princeton University is leading the Shakespeare and Co Book Shop Project and chats to Karyn Hay about what he's found.
