UNDER THE WHISPERING DOOR

À propos

From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The House in the Cerulean Sea . Hilarious, haunting and kind, A Man Called Ove meets The Good Place in this queer love story from TJ Klune. Death is only their beginning. When a reaper comes to collect Wallace from his own sparsely-attended funeral, Wallace is outraged. But he begins to suspect she''s right, and he is in fact dead. Then when Hugo, owner of a most peculiar tea shop, promises to help him cross over, Wallace reluctantly accepts the truth. Yet even in death, he refuses to abandon his life - even though Wallace spent all of it working, correcting colleagues and hectoring employees. He''d had no time for frivolities like fun and friends. But as Wallace drinks tea with Hugo and talks to his customers, he wonders if he was missing something. The feeling grows as he shares jokes with the resident ghost, manifests embarrassing footwear and notices the stars. So when he''s given one week to pass through the door to the other side, Wallace sets about living a lifetime in just seven days. Under the Whispering Door is an uplifting story about a man who spent his life at the office - and his death building a home. Praise for TJ Klune''s The House in the Cerulean Sea: ''I loved it.
