Notes From Your Bookseller

We adore TJ Klune and his charming, big-hearted books like The House in the Cerulean Sea. So, it’s no surprise that TJ has gifted us with this compassionate and funny tale about life with Death as a character and a ghost who doesn't want to cross over to whatever's next. A little comfort and a lot of hope go a long way, and this cathartic read is pure magic.

This exclusive trade paperback edition of Under the Whispering Door includes stunning full-color stenciled edges matching the beautiful cover design. Also included in this edition is a bonus story, “A Reaper's Guide.” This pamphlet serves as an introduction to reaping and lays out the basics on how new reapers are expected to guide humans from the end of life to the beginning of eternity.

A Man Called Ove
meets The Good Place in Under the Whispering Door, a delightful queer love story from TJ Klune, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The House in the Cerulean Sea.

Welcome to Charon's Crossing.
The tea is hot, the scones are fresh, and the dead are just passing through.

When a reaper comes to collect Wallace from his own funeral, Wallace begins to suspect he might be dead.

And when Hugo, the owner of a peculiar tea shop, promises to help him cross over, Wallace decides he’s definitely dead.

But even in death he’s not ready to abandon the life he barely lived, so when Wallace is given one week to cross over, he sets about living a lifetime in seven days.

Hilarious, haunting, and kind, Under the Whispering Door is an uplifting story about a life spent at the office and a death spent building a home.
