Wheeler Hardcover - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [4]

Consists of a mix of top-circulating genres, this blend of current bestsellers and well-reviewed fiction will help you add depth and breadth to your bestseller collection. Aimed at pleasing a wide readership‚ this plan includes New York Times bestsellers‚ award-winning titles‚ and works by highly acclaimed authors‚ with many simultaneous publications.



With the quiet precision of Jane Smiley’s A Thousand Acres and the technical clarity of Mary Roach’s Stiff, this is a novel about a young woman who comes most alive while working in her father’s mortuary in the small, forgotten town of Petroleum. Reserved, introspective, and deeply lonely, Mary strikes up an unlikely friendship with another outsider and finally begins to consider what might happen if she dared to leave Petroleum.
