NINA GEORGE    Book Number: 82587    Product format: Hardback

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookshop in a barge on the River Seine in Paris, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, he mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself - he is still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared leaving him only a letter that he has never opened. After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the South of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story. Joined by a bestselling author, blocked by writer's block, and a lovelorn Italian chef, they travel along the country's rivers, dispensing wisdom and books. A love letter to books for all bibliophiles. This is an enchanting and heart warming read through the encyclopaedic panoply of human emotion. 392pp in US first edition.
