The Binding

Imagine you could erase your grief. Imagine you could forget your pain. Imagine you could hide a secret. Forever. Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a Bookbinder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice - but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse. He will learn to hand-craft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there's something you want to forget, he can help. If there's something you need to erase, he can assist. Your past will be stored safely in a book and you will never remember your secret, however terrible. In a vault under his mentor's workshop, row upon row of books - and memories - are meticulously stored and recorded. Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of them has his name on it. THE BINDING is an unforgettable, magical novel: a boundary-defying love story and a unique literary event.

On a recent visit to the UK I noticed how many new titles have very opulent cover designs, with either stylish graphics like “The Salt Path” or rich, intriguing patterns like this one. Books can be educational, entertaining, or simply seductive, and these new cover designs are definitely out there with that very intention. “The Binding” is pure seduction, and one you can easily fall for. There’s a certain bookish magic in it, and the “binder’s” apprenticeship with a “witch” on the heath somewhere in the middle of nowhere brings back memories of scenes from “Penny Dreadful” (minus the gore and the horror). Besides, a tantalizing romantic entanglement will keep you on your toes. Collins has written young adult fiction so far, and “The Binding” is her first attempt for adults (who are feeling young). Readers who liked Erin Morgenstern’s “Night Circus” will also love this one. A highly entertaining guilty pleasure, it has reached the top twenty of the British bestselling charts.
