“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 apot...

    Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley There is an independent bookstore in Philadelphia called Joseph Fox. It is smallish – one floor, a big first room, a passage, a back room, and a smaller backer room where the children’s books are kept. Every conceivable space is packed with books. Does it have...

    Merde. I think this is one of those books that is going to bring angry comments from readers who liked it a lot more than I did. This novel just did not work for me.

    ”Books keep stupidity at bay. And vain hopes. And vain men. They undress you with love, strength and knowledge. It’s love from within.”People read for lots of different reasons. They want to be entertained. They want a book to explain what is wrong with them or a confirmation of what ...
