      • I’ve googled her and I’m quite relieved that she seems nearly unknown in France or maybe only to readers of thrillers and mysteries (and I am not one of them).
        Sometimes people are better known abroad than in their own country.


        • indeed surprised to see more people commented on her books on Goodreads, for the English verrsions, than on Babelio for th original in French. Mais c’est pas n’importe qui qui reçoit le Prix du Quai des Orfèvres – oui catégorie thriller. Extremely well built and written. And I’m the kind of liking Proust, so yes some thrillers can be superbly written, Pierre Lemaitre is one of the best examples, this one you probably know, as he won le Goncourt last year, though not for his thrillers but for his 1st histfic, on WWI


  1. I haven’t read any of these yet, but i have Madam Picasso in my December stack. Favorites set in France from this year’s reading: Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932 by Francine Prose (love her name) and some Pascal Garnier books.

    Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932


  2. I think my favorite book set in France is Jennifer Donnelly’s Revolution. I hadn’t been super interested in France or French history until I read that book.

    I really love the cover to A Paris Apartment. Something about it makes me want to read it!
