I’d love you to check out the debut novel by Anne Cathrine Bomann, ‘Agatha’. It tells the story of a lonely psychiatrist on the verge of retirement, when one of his final clients completely changes his outlook on life.
It’s an existentialist novel about love, loss and living life. It’s been compared to ‘A Man Called Ove’ and ‘My Name is Lucy Barton’, and been called one of the most joyous literary phenomenon’s of the year.
★★★★★ “It is a shrewd, skilful tale of loneliness, the search for meaning and a place in the world, and the problems of truly relating to another human being. The end is sorrowful and joyful.” The Independent
“In the Doctor, this short, uplifting book brings us a more fully-realised character than most authors could manage with three times the room” The Herald / UK
“A novella about an elderly psychiatrist in 1940s Paris makes for an unlikely literary phenomenon. But Anne Cathrine Bomann’s debut novel is a quietly uplifting masterpiece” Stylist
