“There are books that are suitable for a million people, others for only a hundred. There are even remedies—I mean books—that were written for one person only…A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therapy. Putting the right novels to the appropriate ailments: that’s how I sell books.”

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself; he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which 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 but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country’s rivers, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself.

SWEDISH REVIEW En magisk roman för alla dem som tror att ordets kraft kan läka ett brustet hjärta! Monsieur Perdu kan ordinera den perfekta boken för ett brustet hjärta. Men kan han kurera sitt eget? Monsieur Perdu kallar sig för litterär apotekare. Från sin flytande bokhandel belägen på en pråm p...

2.0 The Little Paris Bookshop
SWEDISH REVIEWJag föll för omslaget och handlingsbeskrivningen av Den lilla bokhandeln i Paris. En man som ägnar sig åt att sälja böcker för att läka brustna hjärtan lätt alldeles förtjusande. Jag hoppades verkligen att den skulle inge mig samma känsla som jag får när jag ser på Amelie från Montmart...
