    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    Lois Clary is a software engineer at General Dexterity, a San Francisco robotics company with world-changing ambitions. She codes all day and collapses at night, her human contact limited to the two brothers who run the neighborhood hole-in-the-wall from which she orders dinner every evening. Then, disaster! Visa issues. The brothers close up shop, and fast. But they have one last delivery for Lois: their culture, the sourdough starter used to bake their bread. She must keep it alive, they tell her - feed it daily, play it music, and learn to bake with it.

    Young Ajax Penumbra has not arrived in San Francisco looking for free love or a glimpse of the technological future. He is seeking a book: the single surviving copy of the Techne Tycheon, a mysterious volume that has brought and lost great fortune for anyone who has owned it. The last record of the book locates it in the San Francisco of more than a century earlier, and on that scant bit of evidence, Penumbra's university has dispatched him west to acquire it for their library.

    Als Clay Jannon seinen Job als Webdesigner verliert, meldet er sich auf eine Stellenanzeige hin bei Mr. Penumbra, der in San Francisco eine alte, verstaubte Buchhandlung betreibt, die rund um die Uhr geöffnet ist. Clay übernimmt die Nachtschicht, und bald ist ihm klar, dass hier irgendetwas nicht stimmt: Die Kunden kaufen nichts, sondern leihen die Bücher nur aus, drei Stockwerke hohe Regale beherbergen riesige Folianten, die keine Texte beinhalten, sondern nur ellenlange Reihen aus Buchstaben.
