The Night Bookmobile By Audrey Niffenegger

The Night Bookmobile

By Audrey Niffenegger

 The Night Bookmobile tells the story of a wistful young woman who one night encounters a mysterious disappearing library on wheels. This library includes everything, and only everything, she has ever read. Seeing her history and most intimate self in this library, she embarks on a search for the bookmobile. But over time her search turns into an obsession as she longs to be reunited with her own collection and therefore, her memories.

The Night Bookmobile is a haunting tale both of transcendence and the passion for books, and features the evocative full-color pen-and-ink work of one of the world’s most beloved storytellers.

Her Fearful Symmetry By Audrey Niffenegger

Her Fearful Symmetry

By Audrey Niffenegger

 

Julia and Valentina Poole are twenty-year-old sisters with an intense attachment to each other. One morning the mailman delivers a thick envelope to their house in the suburbs of Chicago. Their English aunt Elspeth Noblin has died of cancer and left them her London apartment. There are two conditions for this inheritance: that they live in the flat for a year before they sell it and that their parents not enter it. Julia and Valentina are twins. So were the girls’ aunt Elspeth and their mother, Edie.

 

The girls move to Elspeth’s flat, which borders the vast Highgate Cemetery, where Christina Rossetti, George Eliot, Stella Gibbons, and other luminaries are buried. Julia and Valentina become involved with their living neighbors: Martin, a composer of crossword puzzles who suffers from crippling OCD, and Robert, Elspeth’s elusive lover, a scholar of the cemetery. They also discover that much is still alive in Highgate, including—perhaps—their aunt.

    I was always jealous of friends that told me they had bookmobiles which visited their neighborhoods when they were young. Granted, when I got older I realized I never saw one only because I was blessed to live crazy close to my local library, but there is still something almost magical to me about a library on wheels! The Night Bookmobile sounds great too – thanks for the info on the giveaway!

    The Night Bookmobile isn’t a feel-good book, but it’s really moving and stayed in my mind for a long time after reading it. Haven’t read A Fearful Symmetry yet, so thanks for the heads-up about the giveaway!
