Alan, from Sydney
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I work in advertising and I am passionate about music, art, cinema and literature. I really enjoy reading books, comics and graphic novels and I am always looking for weird and interesting things to read.
Why are you here today?
I am here to purchase some graphic novels. I love browsing through the comics/graphic novel section and art/photography section in particular.
What book would you recommend to everyone and why?
The graphic novel Death: the high cost of living as Neil Gaiman is an amazing writer. This graphic novel blends drama and fantasy and really focuses on the value of life.
Tell us about a book that has changed your life.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. When I was a kid I was obsessed with this book and also the animated movie. I even walked into my parents’ wardrobe in search of Narnia. I am still looking for Narnia and animals that talk.
If there was a book that could sum you up as a person, what would it be?
I think no one particular book would be able to sum me up. I am perhaps a combination of books. Part The Great Gatsby, part Picture of Dorian Gray, part Hamlet maybe. Yes, I am really a tortured soul. Just kidding.
