Books in Zürich Aiport

Published by marco on

The book store at the Zürich Airport has a decidedly more diverse assortment of literature than I would have expected. I just expected a ton of Clive Cussler and John Grishman and John LeCarré, but I was pleasantly surprised.

On the first couple of shelves, I noticed three Chomsky books and a Varoufakis[1] book.

Another shelf held Naomi Klein, Chomsky and Varoufakis:

On another shelf, Laurie Penny showed up and, once again, Varoufakis.

Ishiguro’s classic and Arundhati Roy’s latest were on another shelf. I even saw her book on the German shelves, as well.[2]

If I was ever stuck in this airport, I could rest easy that I would find something interesting to read.

[1] Yanis Varoufakis was the finance minister of Greece during the brief Syriza rule. He was the main negotiator with the troika during the Greek financial crisis a few years back.
[2] Sure, they’re right next to Bear Grylls’s book, but that’s OK. To each their own. At least I’d have something to read.
