Bookstore Thief

Bookstore Thief

by Carrie Mercer

One employee's harrowing account of being robbed at gunpoint while working in a bookstore in Ft. Worth Texas. The experience involves shouting, being made to lie on the floor, and fantasies of heroism. The staff is forced to go to group therapy and the robber ends up on one of those World's Dumbest Criminal shows. Carrie rounds out the issue with a few book reviews, her thoughts on employee theft, and how I Am the Cheese changed her reading life forever.
