I've heard good things about The President's Hat and I loved The Red Notebook by the same author, Antoine Laurain.
Here's the opening:
Daniel Mercier went up the stairs at Gare Saint-Lazare as the crowd surged down. Men
"What on earth is that hat?"
Uh, oh. Sounds like Veronique does not like his hat. In French class, when we had to choose French names, the one I took was Veronique. Hope she doesn't end up quashing her husband's dreams.
Thanks for visiting and I look forward to seeing what everyone else is reading.
