The Bookseller

What a fun short story! I was familiar with the author's children's books, so when I was looking for something to listen to while I cleaned the kitchen and I saw his name beside a short story for adults, I checked it out on audiobook from my library. It's certainly not a children's story! In fact, I just learned it was first published in Playboy in 1986. That said, I found it wonderfully entertaining. If this isn't already a play, it should be....
