A small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the store's most annoying customer...
Our Brilliantly Bookish novels can be ordered on their own or as part of a fabulous Go Away I'm Reading gift set including a bone china mug and cosy reading socks.
Flora dies on All Souls' Day, but she simply won't leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration (that she survived by reading 'with murderous attention') must solve the mystery of this haunting, while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation and furious reckoning.
A wickedly funny ghost story, a tale of passion, of a complex marriage and of a woman's relentless errors. The Sentence was shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction in 2022.
