Book Box: The Gifts of Reading

The Gifts of Reading is a collection of essays from writers like Philip Pullman, Roddy Doyle, Imtiaz Dharker and Robert Macfarlane. The Novel Cure is as zippy as the title suggests — it has bookish medicine for every malady! If it's depression, cheer up with I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith and Major Pettigrew's Last Stand.
