How to Find Your Novel Cure
"“Reach for The Little White Car by Danuta De Rhodes. Because whatever it was you did, it wasn’t as bad as what Veronique did, the spoilt twenty-two-year-old Parisian girl who emerged from her hangover to realise, with a plunge into a new Ice Age…well, you’ll have to read it and see. Call in sick, then go back to bed. There you will read- in big fat type that won’t challenge your eyes, and straightforward prose that won’t befuddle your head – a lesson in how much worse it could have been. Go on, indulge."
‘How to Find Your Novel Cure’ by School of Life Bibliotherapist Ella Berthoud.
