About this product
- DescriptionEighteen years old and completely alone, Rosemary arrives in New York from Tasmania with little other than her love of books and an eagerness to explore the city. Taking a job at a vast, chaotic emporium of used and rare books called the Arcade, she kws she has found a home. But when Rosemary reads a letter from someone seeking to place a lost manuscript by Herman Melville, the bookstore erupts with simmering ambitions and rivalries. Including actual correspondence by Melville, <i>The Secret of Lost Things </i>is at once a literary adventure and evocative portrait of a young woman making a life for herself in the city.
