good books in bad times

  • About the author EB

Good Books in Bad Times is a new blog from our friends at HarperOne. The title is pretty self-explanatory; it’s a resource for books that provide comfort and serve as a force for good in difficult times. In one post, CK suggests Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now, and in another I suggest my favorite memoir, The Tender Land, which is about suicide. So as you can see, we here at Harper Perennial are doing our best to make sure that people know that books can be sad and uplifting at the same time.
