The Swan Thieves

I just finished reading The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova (stayed up way too late!). This was not a book about food or wine. It's a novel about art and obsession. A good read.

But the really, really cool thing happened on page 526 of my hardback edition. The main character is on the outskirts of Paris and stumbles upon a restaurant that I lunched at several years ago. In the book-instance only coffee was consumed with no mention of the establishment's name. But the brief description transported me to an enchanted early Spring day overlooking the water in the Bois de Boulogne where even the small French dogs were treated well.

And don't forget the 500 + 4 = 1 Giveaway through April 1.
