The Collected Works of A. J. Fikry

The Collected Works of A. J. Fikry Synopsis

A.J. Fikry owns a failing bookshop. His wife has just died, in tragic circumstances. His rare and valuable first edition has been stolen. His life is a wreck. Amelia is a book rep, with a big heart, and a lonely life. Maya is the baby left on A.J.'s bookshop floor with a note. What happens in the bookshop that changes the lives of these seemingly normal but extraordinary characters? This is the story of how unexpected love can rescue you and bring you back to real life, in a world that you won't want to leave, with characters that you will come to love.

The Good Book Guide Review

A J Fikry runs a bookshop in a summer resort on Alice Island, Massachusetts. His life is in ruins: his young wife has died and a valuable first edition – his nest egg – has been stolen. Then a toddler is left in the shop with a note from her desperate mother saying she can no longer cope and wants her daughter to grow up among people who care about books. Funny, slick, charming, and upbeat, it can be read in a sitting, and with its small, sometimes unlikely, cast of characters and bittersweet humour, should bring a smile to the face of every booklover.
