Staff Reviews

In THE ARCHIVIST by Marta Cooley, the life and poems of T.S. Eliot reverberate in the lives of an archivist of Eliot’s letters and his poet wife. This beautifully written novel confronts many of the enduring literary themes of our twentieth century experience—the struggle to move beyond guilt and find redemption; the role of both religion and art in helping us make sense of our patterned existence in the face man’s aggression against his fellow man. THE ARCHIVIST is an unconventional, sophisticated novel that encompasses so much of what it means to be human. — From THE ARCHIVIST (Martha Cooley)


A young woman's impassioned pursuit of a sealed cache of T. S. Eliot's letters lies at the heart of this emotionally charged novel -- a story of marriage and madness, of faith and desire, of jazz-age New York and Europe in the shadow of the Holocaust. The Archivist was a word-of-mouth bestseller and one of the most jubilantly acclaimed first novels of recent years.
