BOMB did an interview with Steve Salardino and Jenn Witte from Skylight Books. Jenn must have joined after I left LA, but I remember Salardino from when I used to visit Skylight Books at least once a month for my book fix.
It’s still my favorite bookstore in the country. The selection was always amazing, always good quality (and always with a distinct, left leaning and avant-garde bent). You could browse their philosophy section, fiction, poetry and see very little junk and tons of great books you’d never heard of, but simply had to read.
Anyway… read the interview here.
