From bestselling and award-winning author Patrick deWitt comes The Librarianist a remarkable novel about an ordinary man who thought life’s surprises were behind him – until a chance encounter changed everything . . .

Bob Comet is a retired librarian passing his solitary days surrounded by books in a house in Portland, Oregon. When he encounters a confused elderly woman and returns her to her senior centre home, he begins volunteering there to fill the void of retirement. A community of strange peers gathers around Bob and, following a brush with a painful complication from his past, the events of his life and the details of his character are revealed. In The Librarianist Patrick deWitt celebrates the extraordinary in a so-called ordinary life
