The Broken Teaglass

Emily Arsenault’s compelling debut, The Broken Teaglass, was resoundingly praised (“a literary gem,” New York Times, notable crime book of 2009). It’s the story of two young lexicographers who find clues to an old murder case hidden in the files at their dictionary company. An absorbing, and darkly comic mystery-meets-coming-of-age novel, set against a sweetly cautious love story, Teaglass will delight lovers of words, lovers of mysteries, and fans of smart, funny, brilliantly inventive fiction.  Learn more >>
