Summary
Ellinor, frosty and detached PR consultant, has not been feeling herself lately; it's been a while since she felt much of anything. She is disillusioned with her job and deeply ambivalent about her boyfriend. But when her colleague vanished overnight, an unusual brief lands on Ellinor's desk. She finds herself working with the Norwegian Post and Communications Union and hears an inspiring story of one undelivered letter. As her numbness yields to mania, the ball is set rolling on a strange and transformative six months. Filled with existential yearning, Long Live the Post Horn! is a novel about loneliness, love, letters, and the people who deliver them
