“Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.” Hermann Hesse

Hermann Hesse, the 1946 Nobel Prize laureate for Literature, worked as a bookseller in the J.J. Heckenhaurer Antiquariat in Tübingen, Germany from 1895 to 1899. That should give hope to aspiring writers toiling away in bookshops everywhere.
