The Comfort Book

Matt Haig

Reflections on hope, survival and the messy miracle of being alive. Nothing is stronger than a small hope that doesn't give up. The Comfort Book is a collection of little islands of hope. It gathers consolations and stories that give new ways of seeing ourselves and the world. Matt Haig's mix of philosophy, memoir and self-reflection builds on the wisdom of philosophers and survivors through the ages, from Marcus Aurelius to Nellie Bly, Emily Dickinson to James Baldwin. This is the book to pick up when you need the wisdom of a friend, the comfort of a hug or a reminder that hope comes from unexpected places.

Booklover's favourite Jessica Love
I considered buying a box of ten copies. One for my toddler, eight to have a stock of truely beautifull maternity gifts for my procreating friends, and one for me to cut the pages out, frame them, and hang them all over the house. But then I discovered that Jessica Love also sells art prints, so I ordered a huge poster instead.

Bookloverbaby's favourite The Squirrels who squabbled
