' He was about to commit a forbidden act. A transgression. For no man should rummage through a woman' s handbag. ' Bookseller Laurent Letellier comes across an abandoned handbag on a Parisian street and feels impelled to return it to its owner. The bag contains no money, phone or contact information. But a small red notebook with handwritten thoughts and jottings reveals a person that Laurent would very much like to meet. 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? ' 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 ' This is in equal parts an offbeat romance, detective story and a clarion call for metropolitans to look after their neighbours. . . Reading The Red Notebook is a little like finding a gem among the bric-a-brac in a local brocante' - The Telegraph AUTHOR: Antoine Laurain was born in Paris and is a screenwriter, antiques collector and the author of six novels.
' A hymn to la vie Parisienne. . . enjoy it for its fabulistic narrative, and the way it teeters pleasantly on the edge of Gallic whimsy. ' The Guardian ' As entertaining as it is original, this is a story to enjoy like a chocolate with a surprise centre. ' Marie France ' Its gentle satirical humor reminded me of Jacques Tati' s classic films' Library Journal
Antoine Laurain was born in Paris and is a screenwriter, antiques collector and the author of five novels.
