His work has been translated into more than forty languages.
 
The Midnight Library is an international bestseller that explores the endless possibilities of our lives. Suffering from depression and an overwhelming sense that her life is a failure, Nora Seed decides to die. Instead of quietly slipping away, she finds herself transported to a magical library that contains an infinite number of books, each representing what her life could have been if she had only made a single different choice. Faced with the opportunity to exchange her life for a new one, Nora goes on a journey through hundreds of these books to discover what makes life worth living.
