A customer came in and asked about delicacy by Davod Foenkinos, so we got it in around Valentine's Day, and it sold within a few days--but not before I managed to peruse it! It's a French book that has been made into a movie starring Audrey Tatou, who is a great actress. I like the premise, and the writing is quirky and very readable. It's a very quick read, and I highly recommend it!
Here's what it's all about:
"Natalie and FranÇois are the perfect couple, and perfectly happy. But after FranÇois dies suddenly, only seven years into their still blissful marriage, the widowed Natalie erects a fortress around her emotions into which no one can gain access. Until the most unlikely candidate appears: Markus, Natalie’s Swedish, geeky, and unassuming coworker."It was excellent, and now I'm really eager to see the movie!
