McHuston's Booksellers and Irish Bistro is a dream come true for Larry Hoefling.

Larry and his son, Dustin, run this family business in the city's Rose District.

McHuston's is a booklover's paradise with between 12 and 15-thousand books from westerns to warbooks, fiction to first editions.  

“These are like my orphan children, I’m trying to find good homes for them. I have a first edition Charles dickens 1853 subscriber edition of “bleak house” which is an older book. CD is one of my favorite authors to own a book that was published in his lifetime and in his city, that he could have thumbed through…”
