Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"One book. Nine readers. Ten changed lives. New York Times bestselling author Erica Bauermeister's No Two Persons is "a gloriously original celebration of fiction, and the ways it deepens our lives." That was the beauty of books, wasn't it? They took you places you didn't know you needed to go... Alice has always wanted to be a writer. Her talent is innate, but her stories remain safe and detached, until a devastating event breaks her heart open, and she creates a stunning debut novel. Her words, in turn, find their way to readers, from a teenager hiding her homelessness, to a free diver pushing himself beyond endurance, an artist furious at the world around her, a bookseller in search of love, a widower rent by grief. Each one is drawn into Alice's novel; each one discovers something different that alters their perspective, and presents new pathways forward for their lives. Together, their stories reveal how books can affect us in the most beautiful and unexpected of ways-and how we are all more closely connected to one another than we might think. "With its beautiful parts that add up to a brilliant whole, No Two Persons made my reader's heart sing."-*Nina de Gramont, New York Times bestselling author of The Christie Affair"-- Provided by publisher.

    Alice always found a refuge in stories. First reading them, disappearing into their pages, and then writing them herself. It surprised her that characters would grab hold and not let her go, making it less like writing and more like being channeled. After Alice's debut novel becomes a best-seller, each subsequent chapter explores the life of one of its readers, from an intimidating publishing doyenne to a highschooler keeping a secret. The book seems to attach itself firmly to everyone who encounters it. Bauermeister (The Scent Keeper, 2019) pens a love letter to novels, imagining the far reach and deep hold of the stories we carry with us. Fans of Karen Dukess' The Last Book Party (2019), and Tatiana de Rosnay's The Other Story (2014) will appreciate Bauermeister's deep respect for the written word and the power a well-told story can have on anyone. Bauermeister's latest inspiring and introspective novel offers a peek inside the world of publishing, but more importantly, it explores what happens after a long-held dream is achieved.
