Each chapter is an autobiographical essay on a different subject relating to being a clerk in the manga department of a bookstore. Dealing with foreigners is a recurring theme. These are the various topics of each chapter:
I appreciate the odd faces, masks, and veils they have going on for all the people working at the bookstore, that nobody comments on, of course, since they're just representational (like what Doonesbury does). It does make the title of this manga ("Skull-Face Bookseller") feel less relevant though, since feir skull face is entirely aesthetic and has nothing to do with feir actual character. It's also sorta neat seeing how many of these titles they reference I recognize as I'm reading. The fourth volume (ch. 21-24) was flailing and not worth the strain it obviously took to get topics to write about.
