In 1999, Jeremy Mercer fled Canada for Paris with gangsters on his trail and nothing but his meagre savings. Nearly homeless after a few weeks, he met George Whitman, owner of Shakespeare and Co. In exchange for work in the legendary bookstore, Whitman allows struggling writers to live in and around the shelves. He offers Jeremy a cot and thereby begins a charming Parisian story filled with unforgettable characters like the eccentric British poet, Simon, and the beautiful blonde Pia. Time Was Soft There winds in and around the City of Lights as the staff fall in love, drink in the lowliest watering holes, manage to sell a few books, and help Whitman find a way to keep the endangered bookstore open. QUOTES An evocative, funny and romantic account of his time among the artists, eccentrics and sundry down-and-outers who congregate in and around George Whitman's famous Left Bank bookshopLike so many before him, he discovered there's no better place to be young than the City of Light....
