My favourite bookstore

My favourite bookstore happens to be located on the west bank of Paris, in rue Gît-le-coeur, one block east of Place Saint-Michel. 

A real Ali Baba's cave, it is where I discovered the work of Carlos Nine and found rare books by the likes of Paul Flora, Roland Topor and David Levine.

On September 30 his contract with Serbia's main daily newspaper, Politika, was rescinded after seven years during which Petričić's cartoons graced the front page of the paper's Sunday edition.
