Thanks for reaching out! I'm thrilled to hear how much you liked the book. Funnily enough, I don't think I ever put together a list of all the literary references. There are a lot of them:) I should make a shelf on goodreads of all the novels mentioned in The Bookshop of Yesterdays.

Prospero Books is a composite of several bookstores that I love–two of particular importance are on the east side of LA. Prospero Books visually resembles Stories Books and Cafe in Echo Park. I also spend a lot of time at Skylight Books and got to ask the manager there lots of random questions about running a bookshop, which was super helpful. What's your favorite bookshop?(less)

My gut reaction is to say no, she isn't me, but then again, how could she not be? Her interests and hangups are different than mine–as well as her family history!–but I think I've experienced some of her emotional reactions to those around her, both good and bad. (less)

My New Novel, The Imperfects

The Imperfects The Imperfects by Amy Meyerson

Dear Readers,

I hope you’re all staying healthy and safe. During these uncertain times, I’ve found myself reflecting on the things I’m thankful for, which includes being able to connect with readers like you. I wanted to share a little about my new novel, The Imperfects, out May 5th from Park Row Books/HarperCollins. It’s a strange time to be publishing a book and an even strange Read more of this blog post »

I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a novel this much. It reminded me a little of Wonder Boys and The Art of Fielding (two of my favorites) with the added bonus of being a thriller. Lots of delightful snark about writers and publishing but also ...more

I don't know what to say about this book other than it's the closest thing to perfect that I've read in a very long time. With a sweeping timeline, the novel is transportive and consuming, complete with surprising twists and lovely prose. Perhaps the ...more
