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. 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.
