Staff Reviews


An unemployed web designer takes a job working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra's. He is given one absolute rule: not to read the books. He can't resist and ends up swept into a Pynchon-like conspiracy. TImely & engrossing.

“Booksellers and book lovers alike will adore charming Mr. Penumbra and his towering stacks of mysterious, code-filled tomes, as well as the array of eccentric old men that make up the store's late-night clientele. I now want to keep a log of our bookshop's customers by Mr. Penumbra's criteria: 'You must keep precise records of all purchases. Time. Amount. The customer's appearance. His state of mind. How he asks for the book. How he receives it. Does he appear to be injured. Is he wearing a sprig of rosemary on his hat. And so on.' Wonderful!”
