Reviews

THE LIST OF MY DESIRES is a gorgeous little novel that has sold more than half a million copies in its native France. It is as beautifully written as it is heart-breaking, and is a fable-like tale of how money can't buy happiness - STYLISTA massive seller across Europe, this little book of Gallic charm is likely to warm British hearts too - CHOICEA sparkling and intriguing read ... This is a very elegant novel. Its restraint is wonderful, with not a superfluous word. Gregoire Delacourt's keen eye pans deftly across the inner landscape of desire and longing, presenting a tender homage to almost unfashionable virtues - loyalty, duty, patience - without ever taking the high moral ground ... These days, it is regarded as cliched and hyperbolic to describe a novel as a tour de force. But I can't think of a more appropriate description for this book - IRISH INDEPENDENTA literary jewel ... One feels unbelievably happy reading this tale of letting go in comfortably familiar territory - LE POINT
