The Archivist

TitleThe Archivist
AuthorMartha Cooley
Call NumberPS3553.O5646 A87 1998
Location2nd Floor Humanities
RatingHighly Recommended
Book ReviewCooley expertly weaves the stories of an archival librarian and his poet wife with that of TS Eliot and his wife, Vivienne. Mental illness, religion, betrayal, and loss lie at the center of this novel that examines how the past can have a hold on the present. Even better, snippets of Eliot's poetry shed light on the archivist's actions.
