When hopeless Germaine meets 85-year-old Margueritte on a park bench, he can’t imagine what doors this serendipitous meeting will open. A sweetly charming, and at times hilarious read, Soft in the Head is a thought-provoking tale of an unusual friendship that gives both parties a chance at happiness. Now adapted into a film staring Gérard Depardieu, this first translation into English will sweep readers off their feet, wherever in the world they are.
