Ella Berthoud is one half of the team behind The Novel Cure: an A-Z of Literary Remedies. Ella and co-author Susan Elderkin studied English Literature at Cambridge University, and have been friends ever since.

Together with Susan she co-founded the Bibliotherapy Service at The School of Life in London. She and Susan have practiced as bibliotherapists for the past five years, and their love of novels has led them to write this book as a manual for curing all of life's problems through fiction.
