Debut author

A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love and one woman’s best – and worst – intentions.

Without question, Fawn Birchill knows that her used bookstore is the heart of West Philadelphia, a cornerstone of culture for a community that, for the past 20 years, has found the quirkiness absolutely charming. When an amicable young indie bookseller invades her block, Fawn is convinced that his cushy couches, impressive selection, coffee bar and knowledgeable staff are a neighbourhood blight. Misguided yet blindly resilient, Fawn readies for battle. But as she wages her war, Fawn is forced to reflect on a few unavoidable truths: the tribulations of online dating, a strained relationship with her family, and a devoted if not always law-abiding intern – not to mention what to do about a pen pal with whom she hasn’t been entirely honest and the litany of repairs her ageing store requires. Through emails, journal entries, combative online reviews, texts and tweets, Fawn plans her next move. Now it’s time for her to dig deep and use every trick at her disposal if she’s to reclaim her beloved business – and her life.

'Charming, witty, and daring – Elizabeth Green’s debut is all that and more. A galloping epistolary novel that takes us along for the adventures (and misadventures) of Fawn, the owner of the Curious Cat Book Emporium, Confessions of a Curious Bookseller is the perfect story for anyone who’s ever wondered if there was more to life. As Green’s novel beautifully demonstrates, there is – you just have to summon the courage to go looking for it.'
Camille Pagán, bestselling author of I’m Fine and Neither Are You

'In Confessions of a Curious Bookseller, Green pays clever homage to Flaubert’s classic Madame Bovary, with an uplifting twist. While creating an imaginary world equal to the romantic styling of Emma Bovary, Green’s quirky and quixotic Fawn Birchill pulls back just in time – reminding us all that real life can be our greatest adventure and our richest experience.'
Katherine Reay, bestselling author of The Printed Letter Bookshop and Of Literature and Lattes

'Confessions of a Curious Bookseller is such a rare treat. Readers will love every single colourful character, but especially Fawn Birchill, the eccentric, dramatic, exceedingly human (and hilarious, though she doesn’t mean to be) bookstore owner. A beautiful story of growth, a book to be savoured.'
Suzy Krause, bestselling author of Sorry I Missed You
