WINNER OF THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2022

When a book and a reader are meant for each other, both of them know it.

After the tragic death of his father, fourteen-year-old Benny Oh begins to hear voices. The voices belong to the things in his house and sound variously pleasant, angry, or sad. Then his mother develops a hoarding problem, and the voices grow more clamorous.

So Benny seeks refuge in the silence of a large public library. There he meets a mesmerizing street artist with a smug pet ferret; a homeless philosopher-poet; and his very own Book, who narrates Benny's life and teaches him to listen to the things that truly matter. Blending unforgettable characters with jazz, climate change, and our attachment to material possessions, this is classic Ruth Ozeki - bold, humane, and heartbreaking.
