A. J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be. His wife has died‚ his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history‚ and now his prized possession‚ a rare collection of Poe poems‚ has been stolen. Slowly but surely‚ he is isolating himself from all the people of Alice Island. Even the books in his store have become only a sign of a world that is changing too rapidly. And then a mysterious package appears at the bookstore.
