    Abbi Waxman s creation, the book obsessed 29 year old Nina Lee Hill was an absolute joy for me to spend time with, particularly with the mass of literary and cultural references littered throughout this wonderful piece of contemporary fiction with all its comic humour Set in the offbeat district of Larchmont, LA, Nina works at the independent bookstore, Knights, established in the 1940s It s the best fit for Nina, an OCD over planner, so Monica from Friends is obviously her favourite character Abbi Waxman s creation, the book obsessed 29 year old Nina Lee Hill was an absolute joy for me to spend time with, particularly with the mass of literary and cultural references littered throughout this wonderful piece of contemporary fiction with all its comic humour Set in the offbeat district of Larchmont, LA, Nina works at the independent bookstore, Knights, established in the 1940s It s the best fit for Nina, an OCD over planner, so Monica from Friends is obviously her favourite character Nina is smart, sarcastic, socially awkward and anxious for whom spontaneity and the unexpected throws her for a loop Books are at the top of the list in her 5 perfect things, they are medication, san...
