If you love charming writing with a Gallic flavor, find yourself a copy of The President’s Hat by Antoine Laurain. The reader follows the fictional journey of a hat once worn by French President Francois Mitterand. Laurain’s second slim novel, The Red Notebook is equally engaging as the main character finds a purse with no identification and tries to track down its owner. These two books which read like extended O’Henry stories were given to me together as a gift. You might make big points with your book-loving friends and family if you do the same.
