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.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Why did I add Under the Whispering Door to my bookshelf?

I picked this one up from back in 2021 and was really excited about it. I can’t tell you why I haven’t listened to it yet. I feel like this book was everywhere for a long time and most of my Goodreads friends really liked it. Hopefully, I can work this one in sometime soon

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. That’s a new to me one! Only just starting to see this author’s books around since he just came to St. Louis not too long ago. Hope you love this one once you get to read it!

  2. I have this one on my TBR! It looked amazing but of course I haven’t read it yet. I hope you read it soon and share your thoughts!
