2. Letter from an Unknown Woman by Stefan Zweig
Sensual, lyrical, heartbreaking, and gripping are the words with which to accurately characterize the Austrian Zweig’s short story.

However, Erkel useful help longtime companion – the author of popular detective stories. Together, our heroes will unravel a hornets’ nest, bringing to the surface a whole bunch of secrets and intrigues of the past and present.
4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
It is necessary to read Capote’s book not only because the screen version is starring Audrey Hepburn. The English novel captivates with its naturalness and ease of writing, captivates by the lightheartedness and enthusiasm of the heroine, whose seeming carelessness hides worldly experience and life drama. The story is about the friendship of different people, about the events, to become part of which many ladies dream. This is not surprising, because who among us would refuse to attend a New York socialite party? Thanks to the simplicity and naturalness, the book is read in the same breath, charging with positive energy for work life.
5. Elchin Safarli’s novel “They Promised You to Me”
We have always wondered: how can a man so accurately describe women’s experiences and feelings? Elchin Safarli became famous back in 2008. Each of his books is imbued with faith in life, hope for a better outcome, love for the world around him, friends, relatives, cities. “They Promised You to Me” is one of the author’s smaller works. The story of a tragedy that became the beginning of a new life, about the importance of filling the void in the soul and discovering inner beauty. A man’s view of the “black stripe”, which simply must be met.
When, if not in the fall, to discover new authors and a “new self”? To cope with fleeting depression and rainy sadness at times can only be a well-chosen book with welcome words of comfort.
