I am reading THE ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG by Muriel Barbery. Translated from French (c) 2006. It’s interesting reading about the inhabitants of this Ritzy French hotel. From the genius 12 year old girl who’s contemplated committing suicide at age 13, the the eccentric lady concierge who befriends her (and hopefully stops her), to all the other interesting characters. Yes it’s filled with pretentious words but I guess it can’t be helped.
