A book for anyone in search of hope, looking for a path to a more meaningful life, or in need of a little encouragement--"Matt Haig has a way of looking at life which will make you stop and think, and by the time you reach the last page, you will understand the world just that little bit better and feel a little more comfortable being in it." ~Joanna Cannon

Curl up and get cozy, Fall weather will follow. The upcoming Equinox on September 22nd brings with it shorter days, longer nights, and for some, introspection or even seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.) This new uplifting book from Matt Haig, the New York Times bestselling author of The Midnight Library, is a perfect restorative for anyone in search of hope, looking for a path to a more meaningful life, or in need of a little encouragement, at the turning of the seasons or any time.
"It is a strange paradox, that many of the clearest, most comforting life lessons are learnt while we are at our lowest. But then we never think about food more than when we are hungry and we never think about life rafts more than when we are thrown overboard."
The Comfort Book is Haig's life raft: it's a collection of notes, lists, and stories written over a span of several years that originally served as gentle reminders to Haig's future self that things are not always as dark as they may seem. Incorporating a diverse array of sources from across the world, history, science, and his own experiences, Haig offers warmth and reassurance, reminding us to slow down and appreciate the beauty and unpredictability of existence.
Matt Haig is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Midnight Library and the internationally bestselling memoir Reasons to Stay Alive and the follow-up Notes on a Nervous Planet, along with six novels, including How to Stop Time, and several award-winning children's books. His work has been translated into more than forty languages.
