COMETBUS#56 A Bestiary Of Booksellers / A5 / 4€ / 112p./ « The 56th issue of Cometbus is a loving ethnography of New York City’s wild, weird, and bearded used book trade. Aaron writes about his fellow book dealers—and their tribes—with all the unflinching and generous powers of observation that he’s applied to every subject. As he writes in chapter one, « A book sale is a competition, after all, where knowledge, physical endurance, and speed all count. But like an early eighties hardcore show, it only looks violent and chaotic from a distance. Up close, where the action is, everyone is helping each other out. » »
