Aging librarians cope with the end of print while the parents of a child killed in front of the library struggle with their loss. Braided with the seemingly inharmonious narratives of a photographer and his deaf mathematician lover each mourning the other's death, The Sorrow Proper expertly melds gothic fairy-tale and science fiction to bring the trend for dystopian adult literature to the market.
