  • "Als Clay Jannon seinen Job als Webdesigner verliert, meldet er sich auf eine Stellenanzeige hin bei Mr. Penumbra, der in San Francisco eine alte, verstaubte Buchhandlung betreibt, die rund um die Uhr geöffnet ist. Clay übernimmt die Nachtschicht, und bald ist ihm klar, dass hier irgendetwas nicht stimmt: Die Kunden kaufen nichts, sondern leihen die Bücher nur aus, drei Stockwerke hohe Regale beherbergen riesige Folianten, die keine Texte beinhalten, sondern nur ellenlange Reihen aus Buchstaben. Nach und nach findet Clay heraus, dass Mr. Penumbra und seine Kunden einem uralten Geheimnis auf der Spur sind. Mit der Unterstützung seiner Freundin Kat und seines ältesten Kumpels Neel, sowie der Weisheit von Mr. Penumbra, macht sich Clay daran, dieses Geheimnis zu lüften. Ein Geheimnis, das bis in die Anfangszeiten des Buchdrucks zurückreicht. Die sonderbare Buchhandlung des Mr. Penumbra ist ein spannendes literarisches Rätsel und ein inspirierendes und philosophisches Buch voller einzigartiger Charaktere und visionärer Ideen. Robin Sloan wurde 1979 in der Nähe von Detroit geboren und hat an der Michigan State University Wirtschaftswissenschaften studiert. Er hat für Twitter und verschiedene andere Onlineplattformen gearbeitet und schreibt gerade an einem neuen Roman. Er lebt in San Francisco."

  • "After a layoff during the Great Recession sidelines his tech career, Clay Jannon takes a job at the titular bookstore in San Francisco, and soon realizes that the establishment is a facade for a strange secret."
  • "Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone and has landed him a new job working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything; instead they simply borrow impossibly obscure volumes from strange corners of the store, all according to some elaborate, long-standing arrangement with the gnomic Mr. Penumbra. The store must be a front for something larger, Clay concludes, and soon he's embarked on a complex analysis of the customers' behaviour."
  • "Dans la librairie de M. Pénombre, où Clay Jannon travaille de nuit, se réunissent les membres d'un club de lecture. Ils lisent de très vieux livres que le nouvel employé n'a pas le droit de toucher. Il désobéit et découvre que les écrits sont codés. Clay et trois de ses amis décident d'enquêter mais M. Pénombre a disparu.--[Memento]."
  • "Clay Jannon, twenty-six and unemployed, reads books about vampire policemen and teenage wizards. Familiar, predictable books that fit neatly into s section at the bookstore. But he is about to encounter a new species of book entirely : secret, strange and frantically sought after."

  • ""La crisis económica obliga a Clay Jannon a dejar atrás su vida como diseñador de páginas web en San Francisco y las casualidades, la curiosidad más absoluta y la habilidad de subir escaleras como si fuera un mono le llevan a empezar su nuevo trabajo en la librería permanentemente abierta del señor Penumbra. Después de unos días trabajando, Clay se da cuenta de que la librería es un lugar mucho más extravagante de lo que su nombre indica. Solo hay unos cuantos clientes, pero van continuamente y nunca compran nada. Lo que hacen es llevarse libros prestados, ejemplares misteriosos que se encuentran en los lugares más recónditos de la librería, todo de acuerdo a un trato especial que mantienen con Penumbra. Clay concluye que la tienda no es más que una tapadera para otro negocio y su curiosidad pronto le lleva a ponerse a analizar el complejo comportamiento de los clientes y a arrastrar a sus amigos para que le ayuden a descubrir qué es lo que realmente pasa en la librería. Sin embargo, cuando le llevan sus descubrimientos al Sr. Penumbra, acaban por descubrir que los secretos se extienden mucho más allá de las paredes de la librerá ..."--Jacket."
