The Empathy Museum presents

“People sometimes have misguided ideas about this book and think it's a festival of doom that'll leave them feeling bleak and depressed. It's not. It's a painful book at times but also a warm and funny book in parts with one of the most beautifully drawn characters in English literature.”

I got this book from the pop-up exhibition in London. At first, I didn't really know what to expect and it took me quite a while to get into it, especially that I was moving to Bordeaux, France, which is where I have finished it. While at times it was quite depressing, it was also funny and insightful. The writing was beautiful and powerful. I really enjoyed reading this book. I gave it to an Irish friend here in Bordeaux.
