Susan Elderkin, co-author of The Novel Cure, doesn't promise to get your baby to sleep at night, but she does believe the books she 'prescribes' will help lighten your mood and give you some perspective.
Susan calls herself a bibliotherapist and she’s got some great ideas on how parents can incorporate literary remedies into their busy lives. She recommends:
For sleeplessness - Hey Yeah Right Get a Life! by Helen Simpson
For loss of self - Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson
To be mindful - The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
