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

Truly a bookseller’s book—Gabrielle Zevin has presented us with the character of A.J. Fikry, a grumbly bookstore owner whose every reference is laced with the literary. Struggling to accept the loss of his wife, his prized collection of first edition Poe poems, and watching his bookstore sales slowly crumble, A.J.’s nature seems set until a two-year-old toddler is abandoned at his store. A tale of love, second chances, and somehow, bookselling, this is a must read.
