About the Book
Monsieur Perdu can prescribe the perfect book for a broken heart. But can he fix his own?
Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating
bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the
hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader
needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't
seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by
heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a
letter, which he has never opened.
After Perdu is finally tempted
to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the
south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end
of the story. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn
Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country’s rivers, dispensing his
wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human
soul on a journey to heal itself.
