Just in time for the holidays, Penguin Random House has offered one Bookwinked follower who resides in the U. S., a copy of THE NOVEL CURE: From Abandonment to Zestlessness: 751 Books to Cure What Ails You (available in paperback December 30, 2014) authors and bibliotherapists Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin present a witty and irresistible A-Z of literary remedies that recommend works of classic and contemporary fiction as cures for ailments of the mind and body.
To create this apothecary, Berthoud and Elderkin have searched through 2,000 years of literature for the most brilliant and engrossing reads. Structured like a reference book, readers simply look up their ailment and are given the recommended novels to read as the antidote. Suffering from anxiety? Pick up The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa. A broken leg? Get Johanna Syri’s Heidi. Had a falling out with your best friend? Try William Maxwell’s So Long, See You Tomorrow.
