Against Amazon and Other Essays

By Jorge Carrión
280 pages
Paperback
November 2020

 

Picking up where the widely praised Bookshops: A Reader’s History left off, Against Amazon explores the increasing pressures of Amazon and other new technologies on bookshops and libraries. Collecting the author’s essays on these vital social, cultural, and intellectual spaces, as well as his interviews with the writers who love them—including Alberto Manguel, Iain Sinclair, Luigi Amara and Han Kang, among others—Against Amazon is equal parts a history of books and bookshops, an autobiography of a reader, a travelogue, a love letter—and, most urgently, a manifesto against the corrosive pressures of late capitalism.
