Eagerly Awaiting: February 2023
Email or call for price.
Dawn, a genderqueer bookbinder working at the Met in post-9/11 New York, finds a secret love letter hidden in one of the books she’s repairing and becomes obsessed with finding the letter writer. She feels an affinity with the writer, who was forced to conceal a part (or parts) of herself and her story, for her own safety. Dawn’s journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance is warm and honest—a joy to read. And, like Dawn, I was engrossed in the mystery of the letter writer and her history. Endpapers is a propulsive investigation into history, art, and identity. --Elisa
An engrossing unfolding - over the course of 24 hours- of the unraveling of a family set against the backdrop of the Cold War and US nuclear research. A really well-written and organized debut novel, I was drawn into the separate conflicts within each character and loved the historical context. --Jamie
