The Library of Unrequited LoveThe Library of Unrequited Love by Sophie Divry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A single, lonely bookish woman working in a library finds a man who was locked in the basement overnight. This novella is her conversation - and only her side of it - with the man, a soliloquy as she passionately discusses history, literature, the Dewey Decimal System, and her unrequited love for a quiet patron named Martin. It's a short, sweet book, a love letter to the written word and the power of libraries, given voice by a character who is well-read but socially awkward.


[I received an advance reader copy of this book through Edelweiss. The book is due to be published by MacLehose Press on April 7, 2015.]
