Highlands Ranch: Suzanne Rindell will read from and sign her critically acclaimed debut novel The Other Typist (Penguin). It is 1923. A typist in a New York City Police Department precinct, Rose is like a high priestess. Confessions are her job. All around her women bob their hair, they smoke, they go to speakeasies. Yet prudish Rose is stuck in the fading light of yesteryear, searching for companionship. Then glamorous Odalie joins the typing pool, and despite her best intentions Rose falls under Odalie’s spell.
“Take a dollop of Alfred Hitchcock, a dollop of Patricia Highsmith, throw in some Great Gatsby flourishes, and the result is Rindell’s debut, a pitch-black comedy about a police stenographer accused of murder in 1920s Manhattan.... A deliciously addictive, cinematically influenced page-turner, both comic and provocative." – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
