Book Porn (Human Relations comes to Bushwick )

By Katarina Hybenova

By Katarina Hybenova

An all-Bushwick wave of celebration followed the opening of the first Bushwick bookstore, Molasses. Just two weeks later, another store with used books popped out in our beloved pigeon town.  Human Relations is located on Flushing Ave and is run by the same book-loving folk as the atmospheric Book Thug Nation in Williamsburg. I’m tempted to say that good things come in pairs and so Bushwick, the former land of eternal bookstore winter, has turned into the land of lovely bookstore spring.

If you insist, I shall pronounce a comparison of these two places, but only because you insisted. Molasses is a place where you can hang out and spend some time reading a book while having a coffee or a beer. On the other hand, Human Relations is the go-to place if you need a specific book. From the floor to the ceiling, the shelves at Human Resources are filled with books.

 

 

 

“We specialize in fiction,” says Cory Eastwood, the manager at Human Relations. But they have a lot more than that. Philosophy, Film, Noir, History, Art, Science, Science Fiction, Food, Drama and, most interestingly, Foreign Language. Cory says they particularly want to develop the Spanish section because of the large number of Spanish speaking Bushwick residents. But they also have other languages like French, Russian, German and who knows what else. In addition to selling, the bookstore is also buying books, so feel free to drop by with your interesting titles for sale.

Cory says they also want to have readings at Human Relations. The first author invited to read is the infamous Q.R. Markham aka Quentin Rowan, the author of plagiarized spy novel Assassin of Secrets. The novel was so good that Marham got a book deal for two sequels and a movie was to be shot. Unfortunately for him, it was discovered that Assasin of Secrets is essentially a mash up of 13 other spy novels. Public humiliation followed, as you can imagine. Q.R. Markham recently wrote an autobiography about his life as an outcast plagiarizer. (Hopefully he didn’t plagiarize that one too!) He will read from the autobiography at Human Resources in fall. Follow Bushwick Daily for details of this reading.

Also, toss your Kindle in the trash...books are back.
