    --Shelf Awareness

    Praise for Amélie Nothomb

    "Amélie Nothomb is such an utter astonishment, the shock of reading her for the first time is like realising you have missed a whole movement, or a century, in the scheme of things."
    --Scotland on Sunday

    "Read Amélie Nothomb! It's a bit like opening a bag full of surprises."
    --Le Globe-Lecteur

    "Nothomb's Life Form fuses the sincere with the subversive to tell a story as winning as it is perverse."
    --The Seattle Times

    "Nothomb's prose has a hard-edged clarity and a slyness to it."
    --The Los Angeles Times
