The Monkey’s Paw

The most idiosyncratic bookstore ever.

Without a doubt one of the most dangerous bookstores in Toronto, The Monkey’s Paw (a W.W. Jacobs reference for you haunted souls) is frequented by the likes of Jason Schwartzman and Mark Goldstein. Check out the ever-changing selection in the front window. It’s owned, operated and curated by Stephen Fowler, himself a unique fixture in the idiosyncratic secondhand bookstore business.

This week’s Frandoms are by John Gagné at Proximity Canada.
