Bookstore – The Raconteur

Compared to the famed Shakespeare and Company by Gonzague Pichelin, a French filmmaker whose award-winning documentary “Portrait of a Bookstore as an Old Man” celebrates the legendary Parisian shop and its late proprietor George Whitman, The Raconteur is a bookstore in Central New Jersey owned by Alex Dawson and John W. McKelvey. The Raconteur sits on no river and while Shakespeare and Co. faces Notre dame, this Metuchen shop stands across from, well, a dry cleaner, but with its looming bookcase “corridors,” an in-house publishing company, and strong connections to many acclaimed poets and novelists, similarities to what Dawson calls his “romantic model” abound.
