If you’re here for a ghost story, you may be disappointed.
It’s a romance, it’s a mystery, it’s full of intrigue, it’s a celebration of the magic of books, but (spoiler alert?) you’re not going to find any supernatural beings on these pages. If that disappoints you, well, this book may not be for you.
But if you love a good book, you’re about to meet a kindred spirit. His name is Roger Mifflin, and he can’t stop talking about how books can save your life, save your soul and probably save the world.
Set in the aftermath of The Great War, still filled with the hope it was the last war, the “war to end all wars,” Christopher Morley gives us Roger Mifflin, a pistol of a fellow whose life mission is to put the right books into the right hands, with a firm belief that there’s a “right book” for every pair of hands that ever lived.
Part mystery thriller, part romance, and all fun for the book lover, The Haunted Bookshop is one of the great forgotten classics of early 20th century literature and the keystone of The Roger Mifflin Collection.
