Gian Raviolo, the proprietor of Magic Carpet Books, has been a bookseller since 1996. He lives in Carson City, Nevada. For the record, he almost never refers to himself in the third person.
"A work of art is the one mystery, the one extreme magic; everything else is either arithmetic or biology. I think I understand a considerable lot about writing; nevertheless, when I read something good, in fact, a work of art, my senses sail away into a universe of wonder: How did he do it? How is it possible?" – Truman Capote
