The Haunted Bookshop


In 1917, Christopher Morley published Parnassus on Wheels, a love letter tothe art of bookselling. Its suspenseful sequel, The Haunted Bookshop, finds his beloved characters married andstill in love with both mystery and literature.

Set in a lovinglyevoked Brooklyn just after the end of World War I, The Haunted Bookshop cleverlyjuxtaposes a pair of middle-aged bookshop owners and two young lovers with anest of German saboteurs, complete with mysterious clues, red herrings,blushing romance, derring-do, a desperate race to the rescue, and anexplosion. More important, the novel is an eloquent hymn to thebookseller’s trade and a fervent plea for the revivifying and redemptive powerof literature. The unifying thread of this book, and indeed of the life andwork of its author, is its passionate avowal: all that the world and everybodyin it needs is a good book.
