The Bookman’s Tale is a new novel from Viking Books by Charlie Lovett (former president of the LCSNA and author of several books on Lewis Carroll). Set in the world of rare books, the novel includes several references to Alice and in particular to the original manuscript book of Alice’s Adventures Under Ground at the British Library. The Bookman’s Tale hits stores on May 28 and has been named by Barnes and Noble as its latest “Recommends” title. The book will be published in the UK and Australia this summer and in at least nine foreign languages in the coming months. More information is available on Charlie’s website, www.charlielovett.com, where you will also find his “Bookman’s Blog” dedicated to all things bookish and containing frequent entries about items in his Lewis Carroll collection.
If you’ll be in Manhattan, Charlie will be signing copies at the Barnes & Noble at 86th Street and Lexington Avenue on Wednesday, June 26th, at 7pm. You can also buy the book from the aforementioned bookseller by clicking here or by clicking the image on this post.
