“We are not quite novels.

  We are not quite short stories.

  In the end, we are collected works.”


A.J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be.  His wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing low sales, and now his prized possession, a rare book has been stolen from right under his nose in the most embarrassing of circumstances.  And then a mysterious package appears at the bookstore.  It’s a small package, but large in weight.  It’s that unexpected arrival that gives him the opportunity to make his life over, the ability to see everything anew.

As surprising as it is moving, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry is an unforgettable tale of redemption and transformation, and at its core a moving tribute to books and the people who love them.
