This week, get a little weird with Paul Jenkins's uncanny debut novel, Curioddity.
Wil Morgan is a creature of habit—a low-budget insurance detective
Who walks to and from work with the flow of one-way traffic, and for whom imagination is a thing of the distant past.
When a job opportunity enters the frame in the form of the mysterious Mr. Dinsdale, curator of the ever so slightly less-than-impressive Curioddity Museum,
Wil reluctantly accepts the task of finding a missing box of levity (the opposite of gravity).
What he soon learns, however, is that there is another magical world out there
A world we can only see by learning to un-look at things
And in this world there are people who want to close the Curioddity museum down.
With the help of his eccentric new girlfriend Lucy
Wil will do everything he can to deliver on his promise to help Mr. Dinsdale keep the Curioddity Museum in business.
