The Paris Bookseller tells the story of the birth of Shakespeare and Company, a revolutionary bookstore that first opened its doors in the early 1920s in Paris, offering a literary haven for expats, writers, and French people seeking books written in English.
What initially seemed an impossible dream rapidly became a wonderous reality for Sylvia Beach, an American writer abroad, who opens the store on the bohemian Left Bank of Paris, a place where artists convene and lifestyles that are banned in other countries can be experienced without fear of persecution or condemnation. When Sylvia decides to publish the banned manuscript of Ulysses by James Joyce, the trajectory of her life is irreparably altered.

As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again friend, William. For the next several months, it's just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea.
Rich with empathy and emotion, Lucy by the Sea vividly captures the fear and struggles that come with isolation, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities that those long, quiet days can inspire. At the heart of this story are the deep human connections that unite us even when we're apart—the pain of a beloved daughter's suffering, the emptiness that comes from the death of a loved one, the promise of a new friendship, and the comfort of an old, enduring love.
