On All Souls' Day of 2019, Flora dies at a small independent bookstore in Minneapolis. But in this novel by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Night Watchman, Flora—the store's most annoying customer—continues to haunt the aisles. After years of incarceration, Tookie has finally landed a job selling books, and she will also try to solve the mystery of this haunting while endeavoring to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and reckoning.
