The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Muriel Barbery, beautiful book! I couldn't put it down for days after I'd finished reading it. I strongly recommend it. The original is in French. The picture on the right, is my painting: Casablanca Girls, oil on canvas, 12x24" (30x60 cm.) I painted it after my sketches and photographs of my trip to Casablanca in 2009. What a great city!
