What ails you ?

Whether you have a stubbed toe or a stubborn case of the blues, within this website you’ll find a cure in the form of a novel – or a combination of novels – to help ease your pain. We have a selection of remedies chosen from our book, The Novel Cure, to give you an idea of what we’re all about, but if you don’t find what you are looking for just visit our surgery and request the answer to your own ailment – we always like a new challenge. 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.
