GEORGE WHITMAN : THE SPIRIT OF SHAKESPEARE & CO, PARIS
I've met George Whitman many times over the years here in Paris and have always enjoyed his cantankerous and poetic expectorations, literary and other. He manned the cockpit in the Left Bank bookstore, Shakespeare & Company, and stamped my books with vigor and humor. He will be missed.

George Whitman (1913-2011). He was 98.
