A clean, well-lighted place. – The Scene
Far from being a jumble of titles, the inventory is well-organized and accessible. Categories include literature, history, biography, poetry, cookbooks, children's books and so forth, much like what you're used to browsing in the megastores. But the ambience at Subterranean is actually welcoming rather than off-putting. Before you buy it new, check in to see what's on the shelves.
A recent trip through the shop revealed and number of things that are also on my nightstand that were, unfortunately, purchased new and at retail. Stacy Schiff's biography "Vera," about V. Nabokov's wife and lifelong advocate was a good buy as was Anita Diamant's "The Red Tent." The poetry section is promising and worth repeat visits. Readers of poetry don't part with their treasures as easily as fiction readers do, but the proprietors obviously know what to look for.
