Prize-winning author Anna Gavalda has galvanized the literary world with an exquisite genius for storytelling. Here, in her epic new novel of intimate lives-and filled with the "humanity and wit" (Marie Claire) that has made it a bestselling sensation in France-Gavalda explores the twists of fate that connect four people in Paris. Comprised of a starving artist, her shy, aristocratic neighbor, his obnoxious but talented roommate, and a neglected grandmother, this curious, damaged quartet may be hopeless apart, but together, they may just be able to face the world.

The only complaint I have about this book is that I can't speak (or read) fluent French yet, and so it'll be a while before I can read the original. A masterpiece.(This happens to be approximately the 10th time I've read the point in the past year or so, and my opinion still hasn't changed)

I'm seeing a pattern emerging that tells me I should probably stick to non-fiction when it comes to France. I've enjoyed a lot of non-fiction about France, but French novelists just don't seem to wor...
