The last book I bought in Curious Fox was Tove Ditlevsen’s, Childhood, Youth, Dependency. Though I can’t remember if this was my last visit to the bookshop in Flughafenstraße. Maybe the last visit was when I brought in some used books after reorganizing my library. What I clearly remember from my last visit was the news that the shop would be closing. It came as a surprise. They had to move and do it quickly, within a few weeks. It was a blow. Shocked, I could only mumble niceties. Curious Fox is a beloved bookshop, it is my favorite, its immanent closure is a loss to the neighborhood, moreover it is a loss of a bookshop at its prime. I didn’t inquire further about the ins and outs of this painful situation. I felt it rude to pry into the past and the future was still hazy. The conversation ended with an assertion that Curious Fox will reopen as soon as a new location is found. And so, on the 24th of August 2021, Curious Fox closed. It still has a website, one can still place orders and join the newsletter, but all else is in limbo. I check the website often, at least once a week, hoping for a new location to be announced. I wait patiently for developments. The city feels more precarious now. Local bookshops have always been the canary in the coal mine for Berlin’s gentrification. As a loyal customer, I won’t seek another shop till this turmoil is resolved. Steadfastness is the best answer to unwanted change.
