The Novel Cure by Susan Elderkin and Ella Berthoud – review

A man came into my GP surgery the other day, sat down on the seat next to my desk, and spread his palms. He was a reader, which makes it easier; my health board provides a list of titles stocked in the city's libraries and recommended by the local psychiatric services. There are titles tailored for adults, adolescents and children covering topics such as anorexia, bulimia, coping with bereavement, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. After printing out the list we had a conversation about which of these books, if any, might be of help. Sometimes I've added a couple of my own: Andrew Solomon's Far From the Tree for parents struggling with the demands of caring for a disabled child; William Styron's Darkness Visible for those who've slipped into profound despair. It has taken a while for my health board to realise the benefits of bibiliotherapy, but the idea is an old one.

Whether you have stomach flu, low self esteem or are just stuck in a rut, this book will recommend a novel to help ease your pain. This is a medical handbook—with a difference. Learn more about bibliotherapy and submit your own ailment for treatment at The Novel Cure website.
