Coups de coeur & new titles

LE PLUS GRAND PHILOSOPHE DU MONDE BY JOANN SFAR
EDITIONS ALBIN MICHEL, 2014

The renowned author of comic book series Le Chat du Rabbin brings his would-be film to life in this engaging, light and humourous satire, a homage
to the world’s greatest comedians, including the Marx Brothers, Woody Allen and Mel Brooks. The modern, unique take on Voltaire’s Candide will leave amateur philosophers with lots to discuss.



CAPRICE DE LA REINE BY JEAN ECHENOZ
EDITIONS DE MINUIT, 2014

An engrossing collection of short stories that takes us on a journey to seven different –and sometimes surprising –locations. Follow the author through England and France to the most unlikely of places. There is something for everyone in the new novel from the author of Je m’en vais: brilliantly detailed descriptions, irony and an epic sense of Wanderlust.

Reading group
