Muriel Barbery wrote a treasure full of worldly wisdom: The 12-year-old Paloma and the aging Concierge Renée are connected by far more than their noble home. A story about an unusual friendship and the love for the beauty of this world.
Emilio, a deaf boy, who barely speaks, discovers his world through the ears of his older neighbor and fatherly friend Javier. A story about the love for the sea and the sun, growing up- and a friendship, as we wish it for Emilio.
This Book! A sober description of inspired fire and absolute art. An unfulfilled longing. And of more than one life, that was sacrificed under the guise of the kitchen. Or simply: A really good novel.
