Here’s what Boswellian Daniel has to say about The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry in his #1 Indie Next List recommendation: "Fikry is a bookseller with a small shop in a sleepy resort island town off the coast of Massachusetts. He’s a bit cantankerous, but with good reason; his wife, the people person of the relationship, has just died and his prize possession, a rare copy of Tamerlane, has gone missing. Despite all those losses, there’s one strange addition, a baby girl left on his doorstep, with an explicit request for Fikry to take her in. Zevin’s novel is one of death and rebirth, held together by the spirit of the bookstore. It’s a romantic comedy, a spiritual journey, and if you include the chapter openings, a collection of short story criticism too. In short, it’s a celebration of books and the people who read them, write them, and sell them."
As per Daniel, Boswell Book Company had a soft opening on April 3rd and our grand opening was May 7th (?), so any time in between is fair game for an anniversary/birthday celebration! (added from Random House)
