"A.J. Fikry, the owner and proprietor of island books, is attempting (poorly) to cope with the recent death of his spouse, when someone unexpectedly enters his life and turns it around.  Soon a cast of eclectic characters become like his extended family.  The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry is a sweet & charming story of a curmudgeonly bookseller whose damaged heart is mended by the engaging ensemble who populate the Nantucket-like island of Alice, MA...The literary references, short story suggestions, and tribute to book selling are an added bonus!"--Reviewed by Tova
