“a good bookstore was going to be that place”

Back around 1992, I walked into Lemuria Bookstore and asked to meet the owner. I’d recently decided that I only wanted to work in a place and field if it brought me joy. A good bookstore was going to be that place, and I happened to live in a city with one of the best ever. Luckily, John greeted me with curiosity and took a chance on me. It was the beginning of a long and important friendship, as well as my becoming a bookseller under his wing. This is a most significant inscription from a photography book published by my friend and mentor. The book is a wonderful tour and homage to his deeply loved city of Jackson.
