The Other Typist
  • The Other Typist

  • New York City, 1924: the height of Prohibition and the whole city swims in bathtub gin. Rose Baker is an orphaned young woman working as a typist in a police precinct on the lower East Side. Every day Rose transcribes the confessions of gangsters and murderers - and while she may disapprove of the details, she prides herself on typing up the goriest of crimes without batting an eyelid.

    But when the captivating Odalie begins at the precinct Rose finds herself falling under the new typist's spell. As the two girls' friendship blossoms, it is not long before Rose's fascination for her new colleague turns to obsession.

    But just who is the real Odalie, and how far will Rose go to find out?

Suzanne Rindell is a doctoral student in American modernist literature at Rice University. The Other Typist is her first novel. She lives in New York City and is currently working on a second novel.
