Out of Print (Paperback)
Charlie Mueller is good with technology. He's not that kind of old person. Sure, he's spent four decades as an NYC bookseller, married to routine in an industry that time forgot. But he can still evolve. He can learn to sell an E-Reader. Maybe.
Jake has just arrived from Ohio-blue-eyed, polite, fresh as windowsill pie. Annoying, basically. But when Charlie gets mixed up in Jake's plight to win the heart of Chelsea, a fellow bookseller, the two become reluctant friends. While Jake climbs the ladder of management, Charlie falls behind with the digital revolution.
Part romantic comedy, part workplace meditation, part love letter to literature, Out of Print follows Charlie through a series of late-in-life dilemmas set among the stacks of a bookstore.
