Are you weary in Brain and Body? Do you desire a Positive Cure for your Pessimism? Do you require Brontë to re-book your Broken Heart? Do you despair of your Nose? Can Fielding open your Flood Gates? Or Pynchon purge your Paranoia? May we administer Austen to curb your Arrogance? Hemingway for your Headache? An injection of du Maurier for your low Self-Esteem? Are you Shy, Single, Stressed or Sixty? Are your Vital Statistics in need of some Spark? May we massage you with Murakami? Ease your pain with Woolf or Wodehouse? Do you require the Very Book to lessen your Loneliness? May we prescribe a literary tonic? Whether you have a stubbed toe or a severe case of the blues, within these pages you''ll find a cure in the form of a novel - or a combination of novels - to help ease your pain. You''ll also find advice on how to tackle common reading ailments - such as what to do when you feel overwhelmed by the number of books in the world, or if you have a tendency to give up halfway through. When read at the right moment in your life, a novel can - quite literally - change it, and   The Novel Cure   is a reminder of that power. Written with authority, passion and wit, here is a fresh approach to finding new books to read, and an enchanting way to revisit the books on your shelves.
