Nina George - The Little Paris Bookshop (2nd Hand Paperback)
A delightful and quirky story about Monsieur Jean Perdu’s Literary Apothecary: a barge moored on the river Seine.
He’s a bookseller with a difference - he only sells books to customers that he believes they need, not always what they came in to buy. His recommendation, or ‘diagnosis’, is made after a brief consultation aboard the floating bookshop - it’s a unique gift he possesses, you see.
There’s just one problem - Monsieur Perdu cannot heal himself. For over twenty years he has lived alone in his apartment trying to forget his lost love and by doing so, he has also forgotten how to live.
