Review:

From the reviews of `A French Novel':`Frederic doesn't just remember his childhood, he relives it in sensuous detail ... though the book grows rich with Frederic's nostalgia and regret, it is consistently witty in tone ... Beigbeder has a unique sensibility ... After its cerebral beginnings `A French Novel' builds to an emotionally luscious conclusion' Evening Standard`Beigbeder is a wind-up merchant par excellence yet, despite his persona of a finger-stabbing pub bore, he has a fine line in self-deprecation as well as any number of caustic quips' Metro`Cooler, self-mocking, but heartfelt as well as ingenious, Frederic Beigbeder's `A French Novel' sees the French enfant terrible take his brief detention after a drugs bust as the cue for a romp, both comic and melancholy, though his own career of excess consumption, and that of postwar France' Independent, `Books of the Year'
