Content descriptions

General Note:
"A Tom Doherty Associates book."
Summary, etc.:
"A Man Called Ove meets The Good Place in Under the Whispering Door, a delightful queer love story from TJ Klune, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The House in the Cerulean Sea. When a reaper comes to collect Wallace from his own funeral, Wallace begins to suspect he might be dead. And when Hugo, the owner of a peculiar tea shop, promises to help him cross over, Wallace decides he's definitely dead. But even in death he's not ready to abandon the life he barely lived, so when Wallace is given one week to cross over, he sets about living a lifetime in seven days. Hilarious, haunting, and kind, Under the Whispering Door is an uplifting story about a life spent at the office and a death spent building a home"-- Provided by publisher.

    Wallace Price is incredibly successful, but at the expense of all human connection, and he dies alone in his office. Then he finds himself at his own funeral, unsure of how he got there. There are only five attendees, including a young woman he doesn't know. She, as it turns out, is a Reaper. Wallace is her first solo job, and she's determined to make his transition smooth. The first step is to take him to the ferryman, Hugo. Hugo runs a tea shop, which Wallace at first finds completely laughable. His initial skepticism fades, though, and he learns to handle the trials of being dead surprisingly well. There are many kinds of death, and many kinds of grief, and quite a few of them end up at Hugo's tea shop. Wallace's stay can't last forever, though—he is, after all, dead, and will have to go through the final door eventually. Klune's (The House in the Cerulean Sea, 2020) latest is a sweet tale of grief and second chances, and a ghost story about not giving up on even the most lost of souls.
