While French literature has a broad range of timeless classics, a large portion or which discuss thought provoking ideas and intellectual themes. While it could be intimidating to start reading some French literature most are ones that should not go without reading. For instance, the book “Sagan, Paris 1954” by Anne Berest which is about the story of Francoise Sagan and the months leading up to the publication of the novel that made her a literary icon at 18 “Bonjour Tristesse”. The novel that the first book is about is also a great read. Sagan’s novel is a coming of age story that captures the vulnerability and melodrama present in many teenagers’ lives. “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” by Muriel Barbery, and “My Father’s Glory” by Marcel Pagnol are also great choices to read to start the dive into French literature.
