A book for book lovers, The Last Bookshop is a uplifting novel that reminds us never to underestimate the power of people who love books.

Cait is a bookshop owner and book nerd whose social life revolves around her mobile bookselling service hand-picking titles for elderly clients, particularly the grandmotherly June. After a tough decade for retail, Book Fiend is the last bookshop in the CBD, and the last independent retailer on a street given over to high-end labels.

Profits are small, but clients are loyal. When James breezes into Book Fiend, Cait realises life might hold more than her shop and her cat, but while the new romance distracts her, luxury chain stores are circling Book Fiend's prime location, and a more personal tragedy is looming.

About the Author

Emma Young has always traded in words. Armed with a BA in English Literature, she became a bookseller. When the customers finally wore her out, she retrained as a journalist.

She is now a digital reporter for WAtoday, with work regularly appearing in sister publications The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald. Her eight wins at the WA Media Awards include the 2018 Matt Price Award for Best Columnist.

After turning thirty, she burst with belated urgency into novel-writing.

Since then, she has been selected for the 2018 Katharine Susannah Pritchard Writers’ Centre 1st Edition Retreat hosted by WA author Laurie Steed, and for the 2018-19 Four Centres Emerging Writers’ Program.

In 2019, her poetry appeared in Landscapes: The Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language and The Last Bookshop was shortlisted for the inaugural $20,000 Fogarty Literary Award.

In 2020, she was shortlisted for the Arthur Lovekin Prize for Excellence in Journalism.

She has two more fiction manuscripts on the go.
