DEAR HOWARD: Tales Told in Letters

by David Batterham

Antiquarian bookseller David Batterham admits that booksellers are often rather odd. He spent many years scouring the world in search of rare and forgotten books and, frequently alone, he would write to his friend, the painter Howard Hodgkin, neither expecting nor receiving a reply. Mostly written in cheap cafés and restaurants, these letters portray a wonderfully bohemian world and reveal the author’s sharp eye for the absurd and bizarre.
