The Little French Village of Book Lovers

The Little French Village of Book Lovers

From the million-copy bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop


Brought to you by Penguin.

Monsieur Perdu is back!

In this new novel from Nina George we return to Jean Perdu's beautiful barge on the Seine, his Literary Apothercary. He's spent many years still prescribing just the right book for his customers in the exact time they need it. His beloved books are his medicine: books that will comfort, guide, envelop and the perfect book to the customer that he know will guide them.

But now, dear reader, he's sharing his favourite novel with you. As his floating bookshop arrives in the soft lights of Provence, Perdu shares the book that has healed him, brought him happiness, anchored him and shown him his way in life. It is comfort and safety in book form, a novel about love, the magic of balmy nights in the Mediterranean and the often unseen good in people.
