The Elegance of the HedgehogMuriel Barbery
I’ve read excellent reviews of this books, and it seems like lgrammar geeks, readers of Colette and lovers of Amelie would enjoy it.
"Madame Michel falls squarely within the stereotype of the Parisian  concierge: She’s a dumpy, seemingly unsophisticated and uneducated woman  who serves as grumpy doorkeeper to a rather tony apartment building.  But she has been educating herself for decades—through library books,  movies, recordings, concerts, and art exhibitions. So, when the real  estate agent selling one of the apartments makes a grammatical gaffe  ("bring," rather than "take"), Madame Michel’s flinch begins to unravel  her façade of drudgery and disinterest. Monsieur Ozu, the new resident  who observes and shares her reaction, becomes fascinated with her. He  compares her to a hedgehog: on the outside, covered in quills, "a deceptively indolent little creature, fiercely solitary—and terribly elegant.”  Here’s a novel whose plot turns on a linguistic error: How can you  resist? It entices further with an incipient romance between an unkempt  fifty-something woman and the sophisticated and charming man who falls  into her life. No wonder we dames d’un certain age are all aglow about The Elegance of the Hedgehog.”
