"My eye lit upon this book in the list of the few brave titles remaining in the publication schedule once the Coronavirus lockdown took hold. I’m so glad it stood its ground: there is balm for what ails us in the pages of this beautifully bound book. From meliorism (for when you’re worried about the world) to dolorifuge (for when you’re overcome with sadness) to the wonderfully expressive growlery (for when you’re in a bad mood) and antipelargy (for when you’re missing your family), there is wisdom for so many of the experiences of this strange, strange year.". Recommended by Maria Dickenson, Dubray Head office.
