Piecing Together a Mystery

The Broken Teaglass by Emily Arsenault

Genre: Adult Fiction, Mystery

For all of your word-lovers out there who want to be immersed in the obscure world of lexicography and dictionary-making, pick up this book. A fun, witty mystery with two twentysomething characters trying to find their way in the world while solving a mystery left behind by one of the dictionary's former employees. Philosophy major Billy and her co-worker Mona are lively realistic characters. I wish they were my friends so we could have word usage debates together!

I also recommend her next book, In Search of the Rose Notes

Song to Read By: "Scythian Empires" by Andrew Bird
