A book in French

Petronille (French Edition) - Amelie Nothomb, Albin Michel

As good as usual. 

She's my favourite (frenchspeaking) author and my most read author of all time. 

Lots of people do not like Nothomb, but her writing style is so great. All her books have something in common and they sometimes really look alike, but it is always a pleasure for me to read (or re-read) one of her books. 

 

I am wondering, do a lot of people know her outside French-speaking countries? Have you ever read one of her books?

 

Other great books by Nothomb: Acide Sulfurique (Sulphuric Acid), Cosmétique de l'ennemi (The Enemy's cosmetique), Hygiène de l'Assassin (Hygiene and the Assassin) and many more :)
