Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

A New York Times Bestseller, a #1 Indie Next Pick, and a #1 LibraryReads Selection

 “This novel has humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all love--love of books and bookish people and, really, all of humanity in its imperfect glory.” —Eowyn Ivey, author of The Snow Child

A. J. Fikry, the irascible owner of Island Books, has recently endured some tough years: his wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and his prized possession--a rare edition of Poe poems--has been stolen. Over time, he has given up on people, and even the books in his store, instead of offering solace, are yet another reminder of a world that is changing too rapidly. Until a most unexpected occurrence gives him the chance to make his life over and see things anew. 

Gabrielle Zevin’s enc
hanting novel is a love letter to the world of books--an irresistible affirmation of why we read, and why we love.

 

Gabrielle Zevin is the author of eight novels, including Elsewhere and most recently, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is a New York Times Best Seller.
