Storied Life of A.J. Fikry (Zevin)

Book Reviews
The only thing that’s “storied” in the life of A.J. Fikry, a curmudgeonly independent bookseller, in this funny, sad novel from Zevin is his obvious love of literature.... Fikry runs Island Books....a “persnickety little bookstore.... The surprisingly expansive story...arriv[es] at a bittersweet denouement. Zevin is a deft writer, clever and witty, and her affection for the book business is obvious.
Publishers Weekly

In this sweet, uplifting homage to bookstores, Zevin perfectly captures the joy of connecting people and books.... Filled with interesting characters, a deep knowledge of bookselling, funny depictions of book clubs and author events, this will prove irresistible to book lovers everywhere.

Fikry drinks. Island Books drifts toward bankruptcy.... Zevin writes characters who grow and prosper, mainly A. J. and Lambiase, in a narrative that is sometimes sentimental, sometimes funny, sometimes true to life and always entertaining. A likable literary love story about selling books and finding love.
