About the Author:

Elliott Baker was born in 1922 in Buffalo, New York, graduated from Indiana University, and was an infantry rifleman in WWII. His works have been published in numerous countries and languages. These include his novels, A FINE MADNESS (1964), THE PENNY WARS (1968), POCOCK & PITT (1971), KLYNT'S LAW (1976), AND WE WERE YOUNG (1979), UNHEALTHFUL AIR (1988), and DOCTOR LOPEZ (1995). A partial biography, UNREQUITED LOVES, was published in 1974 and a collection of essays, BARDOLATRY, in 1992. He has written for both television and motion pictures (receiving an Emmy nomination for this teleplay THE ENTERTAINER), and his fiction and non-fiction have appeared in publications ranging from GQ MAGAZINE to THE ELIZABETHAN REVIEW. In 1997, Indian University awarded him its highest honor given to an alumnus, The President's Medal for Execllence "for making a positive and profound impact in the literary field."

Store Description

Our shop is located in downtown Waterbury, at the crossroads of Routes I84 and 8. All are welcome to visit, browse, and buy. Don't bother coming if you absolutely hate shops with full cafes, as some people do, but should you come make time to enjoy a fine lunch or at least a cup of our own Bookman's Blend Coffee. Check out our website; like us on Facebook; read our blog, mostly written by student interns. In short, support open shops wherever the heck you find them. Our retail hours are Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. to 5. Holidays by chance, very slim chance (always call first!) Weekend hours are limited, though we offer a High Tea (yes, really) from 12-2 on Sat. and usually are around for a few hours before and after, for bookish types. Dealers are welcome anytime, of course.
