This was a really different and interesting novel, the story of Rosemary,a young Tasmanian woman who comes to live in New York after the death of her mother. She finds employment in a huge book store which deals in everything from overstock to rare books. Her fellow employees are as varied as the books they sell. Rosemary becomes embroiled in the search for an unpublished Melville manuscript, and this has unexpected and major consequences. The writing style feels oddly old-fashioned, as though written in an erlier era; it was almost startling to me every time a reference to the present world appeared. Quite enjoyable.

This is an advanced reading copy, so some typos pop up from time-to-time.
