The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barberry

A great story that’s very clever and celebrates a love of language. The tight parallels between the narrators’ stories are particularly special.

    Yes, loved the writing but didn’t engage with the characters until they engaged directly with each other. There’s a phrase about birch trees that haunts me.
