The Most Beautiful Book in the World…

…by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, is a superbly written and entertaining book. I highly recommend it. The book title is the title of one of the 8 novellas in the book. Each novella is about women, mostly from a woman’s point of view. Though the author is male the stories are very believable and not condescending. The plot of each story is engrossing and often contains a clever, surprise ending.

The author is not only male but also FRENCH. (Rather obvious, with a name like Schmitt, eh mein herr?) The book has been very capably translated into eloquent English. It is truly a polished diamond found in the dusty bookshelves. It has piqued my curiosity to explore the many other European translations of various authors listed in the back.

You will LIKE this book!
