The Red Notebook

By (author) Antoine Laurain, Translated by Jane Aitken, Translated by Emily Boyce

<p>""Laurain presents the story as if it were reportage, but with the confidence of an age-old storyteller.""—<i>San Francisco Book Review</i></P><p>""Laurain's gentle, satirical humor remind this reviewer of Jacques Tati's classic films, and, no, you don't have to know French politics to enjoy this charming novel. Fans of Muriel Barbery's <i>The Elegance of the Hedgehog</i> will want this.""—<i>Library Journal</i></P><p>""A hymn to <i>la vie Parisienne</i> . . . enjoy it for its fabulistic narrative, and the way it teeters pleasantly on the edge of Gallic whimsy.""—<i>The Guardian</i></P><p>Heroic bookseller Laurent Letellier comes across an abandoned handbag on a Parisian street. There's nothing in the bag to indicate who it belongs to, although there's all sorts of other things in it. Laurent feels a strong impulse to find the owner and tries to puzzle together who she might be from the contents of the bag. Especially a red notebook with her jottings, which really makes him want to meet her. Without even a name to go on, and only a few of her possessions to help him, how is he to find one woman in a city of millions?</P><p><i>The Red Notebook</i> has already been sold in twelve different languages. French TV is making a film of <i>The President's Hat</i> and the movie rights of <i>The Red Notebook</i> have been sold to UGC.</P><p><b>Antoine Laurain</b> was born in Paris. He is the author of five novels, including <i>The President's Hat</i>.<br>
