Opinion

From Library Staff

Book store drawn by a horse, curated by a passionate reader, with accompanying dog - and a bit of romance and humor. What could be better? Plus, Ann Patchett named her bookstore for this book.

The beguiling but little known prequel to Christopher Morely's beloved Haunted Bookshop is the story of a fictional travelling book-selling business.

Parnassus on Wheels is the story of an adventuresome man who travels through New England in 1915 on his bookwagon, hoping to enlighten numerous communities. He becomes involved in many roadside brawls and heroic escapes in the process.
