Reviews
"Altogether enchanting. . . . Anyone susceptible to the sorcery of books is likely to fall under the spell of this one." --The Philadelphia Inquirer"An engrossing coming-of-age story full of intriguing secrets. . . . A memorable debut." --The Seattle Times"Intricate. . . . Hay interpolates passages by Melville, Auden, and Borges, skillfully using them to illuminate both the significance of the lost text and her heroine's interior journey." --The New Yorker"A lyrical, exciting writer. . . . The best way for a novelist to celebrate books is to write a good one. And The Secret of Lost Things is just that." --The New York Times Book Review
