Book review ‘De Boekhandelaar’: ‘Will have you on the edge of your seat.’

De boekhandelaar (The Book Seller)
Chris Ceustermans ● Manteau

Journalist Chris Ceustermans’ debut novel is an ode to love, literature and transience in this digital age. Days after Johan’s wife, Anne, dies, he finds an email from her lover. Desperate to know more, he answers, pretending to be Anne, and finds out they had been planning on opening a book shop together. Without letting on that Anne is dead, he proceeds with the plan, but how long can he keep on living a double life? Quirky but fascinating, De boekhandelaar will have you on the edge of your seat. ★★★☆
