“There are books that are suitable for a million people, others for only a hundred. There are even remedies—I mean books—that were written for one person only…A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therapy. Putting the right novels to the appropriate ailments: that’s how I sell books.”
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.

Internationally bestselling and filled with warmth and adventure, The Little Paris Bookshop is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people's lives.

Includes a PDF of Recipes and Jean Perdu’s Emergency Literary Pharmacy.

Funny, it seems i am the only one who really disliked the narrator, his English-French was bad enough it drew me out of the story, and his Female voices were to exaggerated. Loved his narrating when he didn`t do any "voices".

This book was chosen for a book club. I tried my best but I just could not finish. It was drawn out and I was not a fan at all.

I couldn’t finish this book. I wanted to like it but it was drawn out and not interesting to me. The narrator was good.

I loved this book - couldn't stop listening to it. I found it to be beautifully written with lyrical prose. Steve West is a superb narrator. He is one of the few that can do accents well.
