Parnassus at Home, R. and H. Mifflinm Proprietors. This Shop Is Haunted -- Booklovers Welcome!
From the Publisher
When you sell a man a book, says Roger Mifflin, protagonist of these classic bookselling novels, you dont sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue you sell him a whole new life. The new life the itinerant bookman delivers to Helen McGill, the narrator of Parnassus on Wheels, provides the romantic comedy that drives the novel. Published in 1917, Morleys Þrst love letter to the trafÞc in books remains a transporting entertainment. Its sequel, The Haunted Bookshop, Þnds Mifflin and McGill, now married, ensconced in Brooklyn. The novels rollicking plot provides ample doses of diversion, while allowing more room for Mifflin (and Morley) to expound on the intricacy of the booksellers art. Introduction by James Mustich, Jr.
