An International BestsellerMonsieur Perdu is a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life to mend broken hearts and souls.The only person he can't heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a litter, which he has never opened. Finally tempted to read the letter, Perdu hauls anchor and departs on a mission to discover the end of the story.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Jean Perdu runs a book shop located a barge moored on the Seine in Paris. When a broken heart shakes Perdu from his moorings, he embarks on a journey down France's storied waterways accompanied by Max Jordan, his neighbor and a young author whose early success has paralyzed his creativity. Voice actor West beautifully demonstrates Perdu's evolution over the course of the novel, from an aloof loner to a reluctant father figure, while also providing the voice of Max, his pitch rising at the end of nearly every sentence like it's a question, then growing in confidence, and a little bit of mischief, as Max rediscovers his muse. The other two performances are less successful, not because actresses Bering and Campbell aren't excellent (Bering in particular has a perfect French accent), but because the novel itself gives them so little time compared to Perdu.
