"A wholly original take on Paris in the 1930s through the eyes of Binh, a Vietnamese cook. Viewing his famous mesdames and their entourage from the kitchen of their rue de Fleurus home, Binh observes their domestic entanglements while seeking his own place in the world."

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Interesting story and beautifully written, but a bit too detailed and somewhat long-winded for my taste...

The book is ready to travel to Chania now. Happy reading! :)

I did like this book, partly because it was quite slow, but I did think at times that it might be a bit too slow. Lifelong loneliness, no real hope for the things to get better, betrayal.. sad things are the things that stayed in my mind after finishing this.

I read the book slowly and yesterday I finally finished it. I have to agree with Sakirmo and Chania and what they have written here.
