Dining alone in an elegant Parisian brasserie, accountant Daniel Mercier can hardly believe his eyes when President François Mitterrand sits down to eat at the table next to him. Daniel's thrill at being in such close proximity to the most powerful man in the land persists even after the presidential party has gone, which is when he discovers that Mitterrand's black felt hat has been left behind. After a few moments' soul-searching, Daniel decides to keep the hat as a souvenir of an extraordinary evening. It's a perfect fit, and as he leaves the restaurant Daniel begins to feel somehow ... different.

Review:

Enjoy it for its fabulistic narrative, and the way it teeters pleasantly on the edge of Gallic whimsy --Guardian Paperback of the Week

Nostalgic, affectionate, funny and wise, The President's Hat should be read, enjoyed and handed on like a relay baton... or a charismatic black hat. --Lancashire Evening Post

Laurain's gentle, satirical humor remind this reviewer of Jacques Tati's classic films, and, no, you don't have to know French politics to enjoy this charming novel. Fans of Muriel Barbery's The Elegance of the Hedgehog will want this. --Library Journal
