A hug in book form - the number one Sunday Times bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive rethinks the self-help book.
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 just to celebrate the messy miracle of being alive.
Matt Haig is the number one bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive, Notes on a Nervous Planet and seven highly acclaimed novels for adults, including The Midnight Library, How to Stop Time, The Humans and The Radleys.
Haig also writes award-winning books for children, including A Boy Called Christmas, which is being made into a feature film for 2021 with an all-star cast. He has sold more than two million books in the UK and his work has been translated into over forty languages.
