About this Item

wONDERFUL NOVEL JUST RELEASED ABOUT the urge to write a book, about literary ambitions that probably lurk in all of us! "Cohen's characters are as deliciously varied - sharp, tender, hilarious - as they let loose their stories in that carnival of possibilities, the book spoken, but not yet written" (Alastair Reid).

About this title


Inspired by the frustrations of writer's block, the vagaries of modern romance, and a deep-seated love for reading, The Book Doctor combines urbane, sophisticated, mordantly funny storytelling with tremendous heart. Smart, independent, quirky, and well-read, Arlette Rosen makes her living helping people write the books they've always dreamed of, and she's quite good at it. She likes this work, likes the freedom of someone else's sentences, likes being able to change, in intuitive ways only she knows, small details here and there. By the time she meets new client Harbinger Singh, she has worked on sixty-four books, chosen from hundreds of submissions. Harbinger Singh makes his living as a tax attorney, but what he really wants to do is write a novel, a grand, sweeping saga he intends to call Hot and Dusty. While the romance that blooms between these two unlikely lovers is more about longing than lust, it triggers something in each that just might be called hope. With uncompromising wit and a fierce tenderness, Esther Cohen has written a modern-day comedy of manners about relationships, writer's block, and the enduring-if elusive-creative spirit.

About the Author:

Esther Cohen is the author of a previous novel, No Charge for Looking. She lives in New York City with her husband, a documentary film editor, and their teenage son.
