A sweeping historical fiction about the founder of iconic Paris bookstore Shakespeare and Company, Sylvia Beach, and her journey to publish James Joyce’s classic Ulysses--just in time for the 100th anniversary of the publication of Ulysses!
"What must life have been like for Sylvia Beach? Most of us know her now, if at all, as the proprietor of the renowned Shakespeare & Co., or as the first person brave enough to publish a complete edition of James Joyce’s controversy-laden Ulysses. Let Kerri Maher take you inside Sylvia’s life – as a friend, sister, daughter, businesswoman, and lover – with her wonderful new book, The Paris Bookseller."--Peter
“If you ever dreamed you could transport yourself to Paris in the twenties, to Sylvia Beach’s famous bookstore where Joyce, Hemingway, and Pound wandered the aisles, this story’s for you. Maher’s magical touch brings to life a woman whose struggles resonate in today’s world, while also examining the intricacies of friendship, fortitude, and the love of the written word.”—Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue
