The art of drinking champagne

The books is what the title says: two women bonding over champagne and living a exhilarating life. And, as always with books by Amelie Nothomb, we as readers are left asking ourselves what is true, what is pure exaggeration and what is fiction. With Nothomb one never knows. In it's depth it's a story about a female friendship, including two very special women doing whatever society doesn't want them to do.

Cuilin Your description reminds me of the 90‘s tv show “Absolutely Fabulous” 1mo
Jari-chan @Cuilin I wish I knew the show 😅 1mo
Cuilin @Jari-chan it‘s a BBC show. Incredibly funny with Joanna Lumley, and Jennifer Saunders. 1mo
Jari-chan @Cuilin Oh, sounds intriguing! 🤩 1mo

Even though there were some bad news this week, there was still a lot of joy as well.

1) Nemo, of course. So much love 💖
2) Received two lovely food packages from two lovely people
3) Got two awesome books from @VaniBarelyReads ❤ (she will show up here always, because she's my #1 joy)
4) Free kiwi when I needed something healthy
5) Awesome vegan empanada at the local food festival 🎉

UwannaPublishme Your empanada looks so good. My favorite are the unhealthy cherry empanadas with powdered sugar. 😋 2mo
Jari-chan @UwannaPublishme Oh wow, those must taste amazing 🤩 2mo

L'ivresse ne s'improvise pas. Elle relève de l'art, qui exige don et souci. Boire au hasard ne mène nulle part.

I read Petronille (excellent) and Marie (good but less memorable) last year. Edith Wharton's A motor flight through France is on my TBR, I'm sort of waiting until I go to France to read it. Wishful thinking perhaps! 😉🇫🇷 #setinfrance #jubilantjuly

batsy I've long wanted to read Nothomb! 7y
LeahBergen Ooo, stacked! 7y

Wild, restrained and fun. A story about friendship, Paris and champagne ... and the need to feel alive.

"I have some Roederer Brut," he said. "Sorry, no Cristal. Will that do?"
"Fine, provided its chilled."
"But of course," he replied, shocked.

I love this book so much already.

Described as 'literary Thelma & Louise with a whole lot of champagne thrown in'... What else but champagne to drink with it? 🍾

Reviewsbylola That cover is very striking. 8y
Abailliekaras @Reviewsbylola isn't it! I don't know if I love it... 8y

Japanese poetry got it right: it is the contemplation of landscapes that reveals us best.
