Product description

Review

'I loved “The Secret of Lost Things”. I loved the Arcade bookstore and the characters Sheridan Hay has created to occupy it. They are all a bit mad and very alive in this intriguing and hugely entertaining novel.' Roddy Doyle

‘Sheridan Hay writes with a watchful eye and a nuanced heart, investing us in the fate of Rosemary Savage and the drama of bookish obsession becoming obsession plain and simple. She tracks her vivid eccentrics, flushes out their desperate natures, and suddenly we feel the old business of innocence and experience freshly lit. The tormented spirit of Melville comes gusting through, but by design – “The Secret of Lost Things”forges ahead on its own strong sail.’ Sven Birkerts, author of The Guttenberg Elegies

'Hay writes with great charm, and her whimsical, coming–of–age novel keeps the reader hooked form the first to the last page.' Times

About the Author

Sheridan Hay was born in Tasmania. She worked in bookstores and in publishing for many years, and holds an MFA in writing and literature from Bennington. She has published short stories and teaches writing in the graduate program at Parson's School of Design, at The New School. This is her first novel.
