Join Novel Ideas for a reading group discussion of The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George!
Monsieur Perdu is a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore on the Seine, he prescribes novels as medicine for the hardships of life, using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself; he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love, Manon, disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened. After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he departs with his book-barge to the south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and find the end of the story.
