Product Description


'Brilliantly captures the voice of a frustrated lady librarian past her prime, trapped in her bookworm world ... next time you go to the library, you might find yourself looking at that mousy librarian twice' Evening Standard.

'This little charmer already goes down as perhaps the most quotable book of all 2013. A perfect package of the unpredicted' The Bookbag.

'If you possess a minimum of joie de vivre, it's hard not to laugh when reading' Muriel Daniel, Livre et Lire.

'It has something of the narrator of Notes from the Underground ... presented in the form of a soliloquy, sometimes angry, sometimes pathetic, often comical, as in Dostoevsky's novel' Chantal Guy, La Press.

From the Back Cover

One morning a librarian finds a reader who has been locked in overnight. She begins to talk to him, a one-way conversation full of sharp insight and quiet outrage. As she rails against snobbish senior colleagues, an ungrateful and ignorant public, the strictures of the Dewey Decimal System and the sinister expansionist conspiracies of the books themselves, two things shine through: her unrequited passion for a researcher named Martin, and an ardent and absolute love for the arts. A delightful divertissement for the discerning bookworm...
