Overview

Step through the door to lost pages and escape a life you never wanted.

On her tenth birthday, Aydee runs away from home and from her neglectful parents. At first, surviving alone on the streets is harsh, but a series of frightening, bewildering encounters with strange primordial creatures leads her to a bookshop called Lost Pages, where she steps into a fantastic, sometimes dangerous, but exciting life. Aydee grows up at the reality-hopping Lost Pages, which seems to attract a clientele that is both eccentric and desperate. She is repeatedly drawn into an eternal war between enigmatic gods and monsters, until the day she is confronted by her worst nightmare: herself.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The stories that form Lalumière's insanely imaginative short novel all revolve around a mystical used bookstore called Lost Pages, a place that "wasn't fully tethered to the world," where the boundaries of history, mythology, and reality have blurred into nonexistence. The store and its inventory of arcane books often draw in people who are lost and in need of help. One such customer is 10-year-old Aydee, a girl who runs away from her negligent parents only to be rescued by a gigantic lioness and entangled in the eternal conflict between the benevolent Green Blue and Brown God and nightmare lord Yamesh-Lot. Others are Billy, an eight-year-old monster hunter; Kurt, a man tormented by a dark sorcerer; and the author himself. Lalumière's talents are on full display in this cerebral, erotic, and hypnotically compelling tale of bibliophilic wonder. (May)
