The sun’s been peeking through the clouds this week, and reminding us that summer is A Thing. So what better way to look ahead to finer weather than to reveal the paperback cover of our perfect holiday read, The Museum of Things Left Behind by Seni Glaister…
The Museum of Things Left Behind is a hugely enjoyable, big-hearted and beautifully written novel, set in a European country you’ve never heard of before. Nestling in the picturesque mountains between Italy and Austria is the beautiful but isolated country of Vallerosa, a land of stopped clocks, full employment, pungent tea, patriotism, rival cafés and a slower way of life. The world has finally started to take notice of this hidden gem, and when a letter arrives, announcing the imminent arrival of a Very Important Person, the Vallerosans hurry to make preparations for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show off their country. But the visitor is not quite what they had in mind…
Full of wisdom, humour and light, The Museum of Things Left Behind is a heart-warming fable for our times and a hymn to good old common sense, the people who really get things done – and the pivotal importance of a good cup of tea.
We can’t wait for you to read it this June!
The Museum of Things Left Behind by Seni Glaister will be published in paperback by 4th Estate on 16th June 2016.
