Product description


A delightful literary souffle that fans of his other charming books will savor.' Library Journal
'Effortlessly eloquent, quietly hilarious and consistently self-aware, Antoine Laurain's debut novel is a delightful read.' Reader's Digest
'It's delightful' Star Tribune
'Laurain's novella is distinctive for its energetic prose and plot and for his skill in rendering simple what is otherwise complex... pure entertainment.' Riveting Reviews
'A superlatively enjoyable little treasure from France's best current purveyor' The Book Bag
'The Red Notebook is a little like finding a gem among the bric-a-brac in a local brocante' Christian House, The Telegraph

'Definitely a heartwarming tale.' San Diego Book Review

'Resist this novel if you can; it's the very quintessence of French romance' The Times

'Soaked in Parisian atmosphere, this lovely, clever, funny novel will have you rushing to the Eurostar post-haste... A gem.' Daily Mail

'An instant, flawless masterpiece of Parisian perfection.' Five stars The Bookbag

'This tender and charming romance, written with characteristic Gallic flair, is part mystery and part love story. Flawlessly written, it does everything just right and, at the end, leaves a smile of satisfaction.' Foreword Reviews

'Lovely, clever, funny and soaked in fabulous Parisian atmosphere, this is the perfect French holiday read' Daily Mail

'An endearing love story written in beautifully poetic prose. It is an enthralling mystery about chasing the unknown, the nostalgia for what could have been, and most importantly, the persistence of curiosity.' San Francisco Book Review

'Its gentle satirical humor reminded me of Jacques Tati's classic films, and, no, you don't have to know French politics to enjoy this novel' Library Journal
