You’re probably a bibliophile.  Pick up this book and delight in the world behind books—bookstores, publishing reps, eccentric booksellers, authors, the readers themselves - and nod knowingly at all the references Gabrielle Zevin makes to both classic and contemporary literature.

This book affected me so deeply, I re-read it five times and pushed it into the hands of countless friends and booksellers. A quick read, this evolution of a relationship will linger with you.

A fox with a bowtie, a trip to the laundromat, and "laundry rules." This is my kind of book, and I hope it's yours too.

I adored Big Fish and picked up this novel with the highest of expectations.  I'm happy to say they were met, and if you adore Daniel Wallace, layered storytelling or magical realism, read this.
