Red Gap

Red Gap

Jonathan Lethem is among the co-owners at this unassuming storehouse of literary ephemera—more a hangout for book lovers than a store for casual readers. Find historic diaries and elegantly bound obscurities next to campy pulp fiction and paperback philosophy texts. Red Gap keeps unpredictable hours, but couches and espresso facilitate lingering.
