Book Review by Jemima Pett – The Museum of Ordinary People by Mike Gayle
The Museum of Ordinary People: a book that didn’t fit any category I usually read, but sounded as if I’d really enjoy it. Right on both counts, as it turns out. Thank you to NetGalley and to the publishers for allowing me an ARC (which was perfectly formatted).
The superb new novel from the bestselling author of Half A World Away and All the Lonely People.
Still reeling from the sudden death of her mother, Jess is about to do the hardest thing she’s ever done: empty her childhood home so that it can be sold.
But when in the process Jess stumbles across the mysterious Alex, together they become custodians of a strange archive of letters, photographs, curios and collections known as The Museum of Ordinary People.
