David Segal

I specialize in modern firsts and literary criticism, and books on film, music, philosophy. I have many hard to find foreign and independent films and documentaries, (mostly video), and jazz and world music CDs

Hi. Thanks for looking at my store. I have been a bookseller for almost 30 years, starting at the flagship Barnes and Noble store on 5th Ave and 18th street in New York City in 1981. I have also worked at Cooper Square Books, Shakespeare and Company (NY), The Mysterious Bookshop, Bookazine wholesalers, and as a sales rep for a number of small presses. Customer satisfaction is my highest priority. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
