A perfect read for Pride Month, Endpapers is a genre-bending contemporary fiction book that follows a genderqueer person on a journey of self-discovery in early 2000’s New York City. When Dawn, a struggling artist currently working as a book conservator at The Met, finds a mysterious love note written on the torn off cover of a 60’s lesbian pulp novel hidden in the endpapers of an antique book, they become obsessed with finding out who wrote it. If you love complex characters, coming-of-gender stories, Jewish representation, and/or literary mysteries, you’ll love this one.
