The Stockholm Octavo: A Novel

The Stockholm Octavo - Karen Engelmann I received this book in a goodreads first reads giveaway.Some reviewers have said this book was a little slow moving, with the passages about fans, card games, the octavo, etc. but those were actually the parts I found most compelling and wanted more of. If I have any issues with this book, it's that I was never that invested in protagonist Emil's personal storyline; I found The Uzanne, Miss Bloom, and the Nordens more interesting.
