Come join the book club for lively, thoughtful discussions of our monthly book selection, The Other Typist, by Suzanne Rindell.
"A KIRKUS REVIEWS BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR!
A haunting debut novel set against the background of New York City in the 1920s
Confessions are Rose Bakers job. A typist for the New York City Police Department, she sits in judgment like a high priestess. Criminals come before her to admit their transgressions, and, with a few strokes of the keys before her, she seals their fate. But while she may hear about shootings, knifings, and crimes of passion, as soon as she leaves the room, she reverts to a dignified and proper lady. Until Odalie joins the typing pool.
As Rose quickly falls under the stylish, coquettish Odalies spell, she is lured into a sparkling underworld of speakeasies and jazz. And what starts as simple fascination turns into an obsession from which she may never recover." - from Amazon
