Sharing details about ‘The Comfort Book’, Haig posted on Instagram, “It’s full of things which have helped me through hard times. Philosophy, books, quotes, thoughts, mantras, stories of heroic people. It is also full of some really DEEP STUFF like a recipe for peanut butter on toast. It is mainly things I write down to feel good and alive. And I so LOVED writing this.”Matt Haig has also written ‘Reasons to Stay Alive’, ‘How to Stop Time’, ‘The Humans’, ‘A Boy Called Christmas’ among other books.
