Sometimes an author is destined to become the next literary sensation, and we booksellers feel the magnitude of their incoming star power as it rumbles through the book world. Helen Cullen is such an author, and we are delighted to introduce you to her in our beautiful bookshop.

Inside the Dead Letters Depot in East London, William Woolf is one of thirty letter detectives who spend their days solving mysteries. Missing postcodes, illegible handwriting, rain-smudged ink, lost address labels, torn packages, forgotten street names – they are all the culprits of missed birthdays, broken hearts, unheard confessions, pointless accusations, unpaid bills and unanswered prayers.

When William discovers letters addressed simply to ‘My Great Love’ his work takes on new meaning. Written by a woman to a soulmate she hasn’t met yet, the missives stir William in ways he didn’t know were possible. Soon he begins to wonder: Could William be her great love?

Catch this years’ breakthrough superstar in the intimacy of the bookshop.
