Notă biografică

Susan Elderkin and Ella Berthoud started giving novels to each other when they met as English students at Cambridge twenty-five years ago. A novelist, travel writer, writing teacher, and fiction reviewer for the "Financial Times," Elderkin now lives in Connecticut with her husband and son. Berthoud lives in Sussex with her husband and three girls and paints in a hut in her back garden. They have run a bibliotherapy service out of The School of Life in London since 2008, prescribing books to clients all around the world.


"The Guardian" (UK)
"An exuberant pageant of literary fiction and a celebration of the possibilities of the novel." --"Guardian" (UK)
"The Economist"
"Astute and often amusing . . . a charming addition to any library. Time spent leafing through its pages is inspiring - even therapeutic."
"Publishers Weekly"
"A delightful reference guide [Berthoud and Elderkin] tackle serious and not-so-serious ailments with equal verve elegant prose and discussions that span the history of 2,000 years of literature will surely make readers seek out these books. Taking two novellas and calling the bibliotherapists in the morning sounds welcome indeed."
"A fine remedy for bibliophiles."

Brilliant . . . A perfect gift
"Library Journal"
"This appealing and helpful read is guaranteed to double the length of a to-read list and become a go-to reference for those unsure of their reading identities or who are overwhelmed by the sheer number of books in the world.""""
