The Library Of Unrequited Love

The librarian, a single, middle-aged woman, a sharply opinionated and thoughtful bookworm, whose ex-boyfriend left her for another woman, discovers one morning a patron who has been locked in over night.Against her quiet nature, she starts to talk to him, what results is a soliloquy of frustrations, observations, and anguish, covering - with wit, pathos, and passion - history, literature, the Dewey Decimal System, love, and loneliness, as well as revealing her unrequited passion for a quiet student-researcher named Martin, whose studiousness, grace, and "beautiful neck" strikes her.Divry's prose is seamless - never laborious - both funny and poignant. The book's compactness offers an immersive reading experience that touches universal emotional experiences from the perspective of a bookworm.
