  • A ‘David and Goliath’ story, On The Books is the first-hand account of the labor struggle at NYC’s legendary Strand bookstore in the summer of 2012.

    Told by Greg Farrell, an employee of the store who interviewed numerous other members of the staff, the book examines the motives and actions of those involved, including the store, the staff, the union local, and the people of New York City, as understood by the author. Farrell gives voice to his comrades, who provide a depth of opinion and fairness to accompany Farrell’s often very personal interpretation of events. In its ten short chapters the book explores at once the inner workings of our national retail environment, the current state of the book trade, and what happens when that no longer seems possible.
