Motor Books (1957-2013) was a fabulous, double-fronted book shop covering all aspects of transport, located in that little part of the West End rammed full of fabulous book shops. I was delighted that my first signing was there, and touched that there were posters in the windows advertising that I was coming.
The following week, someone arrived at CACI for a meeting on price optimisation in banking. His office was in Covent Garden, and he passed Motor Books each day on his way to and from Leicester Square tube station. When we shook hands, he said, ‘Oh you’re the Paul Kenny’ – which was nice.
