Thumbs up for Pétronille by Amélie Nothomb. Literature.
An authoress – who happens to share the name of the actual author – who is obsessed with Champagne finds a drinking buddy in the mercurial Pétronille. This is a brisk, readable, sometimes very funny little novella that is definitely not taking itself too seriously. Not bad. Makes me want a drink.
Intoxication doesn’t just happen. It’s an art, one that requires talent and application. Haphazard drinking leads nowhere.
