In 1917, Christopher Morley published Parnassus on Wheels, a love letter to the art of bookselling. Its suspenseful sequel, The Haunted Bookshop, finds his beloved characters married and still in love with both mystery and literature.

Set in a lovingly evoked Brooklyn just after the end of World War I, The Haunted Bookshop cleverly juxtaposes a pair of middle-aged bookshop owners and two young lovers with a nest of German saboteurs, complete with mysterious clues, red herrings, blushing romance, derring-do, a desperate race to the rescue, and an explosion. More important, the novel is an eloquent hymn to the bookseller’s trade and a fervent plea for the revivifying and redemptive power of literature. The unifying thread of this book, and indeed of the life and work of its author, is its passionate avowal: all that the world and everybody in it needs is a good book.

Author Christopher Morley

Christopher Darlington Morley (1890–1957), American novelist, journalist, poet, and essayist, is the author of more than one hundred novels, books of essays, and volumes of poetry. He was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford, and after returning to America, he was an editor for Ladies’ Home Journal and wrote for the New York Evening Post and other newspapers. He was one of the founders of the Saturday Review of Literature, and as a fan of the Sherlock Holmes stories, he helped to found the the Baker Street Irregulars, a group dedicated to the study of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes works. He was also one of the first judges for the Book-of-the-Month Club. He is probably best known for his novel Kitty Foyle, which was an instant bestseller and the basis for an Academy Award-winning movie in 1940, a radio serial, and a television series.
