This is pretty much the heart of Demon in a Bottle. There’s a page-long montage of Tony drying out and him apologizing to Jarvis, but this is pretty much it. 

I think the lurid cover and the novelty of the subject matter at the time are what made it such a big deal but I suspect that a lot of people conflate Tony’s later catastrophic relapse, where he ends up homeless and near-dying, with Demon in a Bottle.

Entonces se sintió insegura y pensó que debía poner su corazón a salvo. Al menos por un tiempo. Asi que lo metió en una botella y se la colgó del cuello. Con esto las cosas parecieron mejorar… al principio.
Pero la verdad es que ya nada era igual. Se olvidó de las estrellas… y ya no se fijaba en el mar. Ya no tenía curiosidad por las maravillas del mundo y no prestaba mucha atención a nada… excepto a lo pesada… e incómoda que se había vuelto la botella. 
Pero al menos su corazón estaba a salvo. 


Un libro que te pone triste-contento

By Maria Popova

“”Children … are the most attentive, curious, eager, observant, sensitive, quick, and generally congenial readers on earth,” E.B. White famously asserted in an interview, admonishing: “Anyone who writes down to children is simply wasting his time. You have to write up, not down.” And yet down we write still, deaf to White’s wisdom and to Tolkien’s insistence that there is no such thing as writing “for children” and to Gaiman’s crusade against the spiritual disservice of shielding children from difficult emotions.…”

“Feeling unsure, the girl thought the best thing was to put her heart in a safe place. Just for the time being. So she put it in a bottle and hung it around her neck. And that seemed to fix things … at first.”  </br></br>

This children’s book is one adults’ can find amusing. It is literally about bottling up your emotions. It’s about coping with loss which I think is necessary for children to learn at a young age. 

The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers

Once there was a girl whose life was filled with wonder at the world around her…then one day something happened that made the girl take her heart and put it in a safe place. However, after that it seemed that the world was emptier than before. But would she know how to get her heart back?

In this deeply moving story, Oliver Jeffers deals with the weighty themes of love and loss with an extraordinary lightness of touch and shows us, ultimately, that there is always hope.
