  • Steven Godin

    Apart from a breathtaking climb up to the summit of Mount Fuji, I just found a lot of this slim novel too sweet, lovely and whimsical for my taste. Obviously, it is not a book that is targeted at the ...

    Dear Ms. Nothomb,Next time you act like a despicable human being and feel guilty about the reprehensible way you have treated someone, spare the lot of us the torture of being subject to your memoir w...

    This is my third translation of Nothomb's work. With each book I find her writing more and more closer to the autobiographical bone. The other two stories I read seemed to deal with love in an unortho...

  • Abbey

    I devoured this book. I couldn't get enough. The English translation (thanks Europa Editions!) is called "Tokyo Fiancee" and centers around Amelie's love affair with a fella named Rinri while living &...
