Your favourite book to gift and be gifted.
I love gifting The Novel Cure: A A-Z of Literary Remedies by Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin with Indrajit Hazra. It’s a wonderful book we published a few years ago. When read at the right time in your life, a novel can change it. The Novel Cure allows readers to simply look up their ailment, whether it be boredom, isolation, midlife crisis – then they are given the name of a novel as the antidote.
I love receiving any book!
