Summary "The Night Bookmobile tells the story of a wistful woman who one night encounters a mysterious disappearing library on wheels that contains every book she has ever read. Seeing her history and most intimate self in this library, she embarks on a search for the bookmobile. But her search turns into an obsession, as she longs to be reunited with her own collection and memories"--Publisher's website.
"[T]he first installment of a much larger work, The Library, which has its origins in a dream I had as a teenager ... The Night Bookmobile was more directly inspired by a short story by H.G. Wells, The Door in the Wall ... When I began ... it was a story about a woman's secret life as a reader. As I worked it also became a story about the claims that books place on their readers, the imbalance between our inner and outer lives, a cautionary tale of the seductions of the written word"--After Words.
