Smoker's Corner



Smoker’s Corner was established by Suleiman Botawala. Botawala’s store used to be owned by the British and its commodities were tobacco and cigars. The shop was re-christened Smoker's Corner in honor of this tradition. In late 50s’ an avid reader, Mr. Botawala bought the store and slowly transformed it into a haven for books, which now deals mainly in second hand books. It is home to English and American classics and also comic books. Beside these you can also find books by contemporary writers, children’s books and fashion magazines. In this place you might stumble upon a classic collection of books by authors, you may have never heard of.

After Botawala’s death his son runs the shop. He adds that he does not share a similar passion for books, but maintaining the book store is one way of keeping his father’s memory alive.

This is a good place to come if you are not particularly looking for the latest collection. You will find back issues of Rolling Stone’s international editions for ten rupees, English and American classics like O’ Henry, DH Lawrence and Joseph Conrad from Rs 30 onwards and Ogden Nash’s anthology for Rs 50. Smoker’s Corner also stocks contemporary authors like Michael Crichton, Maeve Binchy, James Michener, Peter Ackroyd and Isabel Allende, and a selection of children’s books and fashion magazines.
