Working at a book pulping factory in a job he hates, Guylain Vignolles has but one pleasure in life. Sitting on the 6.27 train each day, Guylain recites aloud from pages he has saved from the jaws of his monstrous pulping machine. It's this release of words into the world that starts our hero on a journey that will finally bring meaning into his life. For one morning, Guylain discovers the diary of a lonely young woman: Julie. Julie feels as lost in the world as he does. As he reads from these pages to a rapt audience, Guylain finds himself falling hopelessly in love with their enchanting author. This is a tale bursting with larger-than-life characters, each of whom touches Guylain's life for the better. This captivating novel is a warm, funny fable about literature's power to uplift even the most downtrodden of lives.

About the Author:
Jean-Paul Didierlaurent's short stories have twice won the International Hemingway Award. The Reader on the 6.27 is his first novel. A bestseller in France, it has been sold in over 25 territories. Ros Schwartz has translated over 60 works of fiction and non-fiction from French including a new translation of The Little Prince. In 2009 she was made a Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for her services to French literature.
Review:
"A delightful tale about the kinship of reading. . . . Much of the charm resides in the simplicity of Didierlaurent's prose and his vivid characterisation. Ros Schwartz's translation perfectly conveys the warmth and eccentricities of his memorable cast." —Independent on Sunday

"Charming . . . a clever, funny, and humane work that champions the power of literature." —Sunday Times
