Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Haunted Bookshop was a delightful place, especially of an evening, when its drowsy alcoves were kindled with the brightness of lamps shining on the rows of volumes. Many a passer-by would stumble down the steps from the street in sheer curiosity; others, familiar visitors, dropped in with the same comfortable emotion that a man feels on entering his club.

Bob Newby, June 3, 2012 (view all comments by Bob Newby)
This sequel to Morley's Parnassus On Wheels is a charming, somewhat old-fashioned tale of a used book shop set in Brooklyn immediately after the signing of the armistice ending World War I. The book features a blossoming love story, a mystery/spy story, and a good deal of the shop proprietor's musings on books and book selling. I envision the bookshop as a (much) smaller, homelier version of Powell's, where smoking is not only allowed but encouraged. The haunts conjured by the title are figurative only: the shop is haunted by ideas and the souls of their authors. (It is ridiculous, by the way, that this book has been assigned to the Horror category.)
