Filipacchi's little known book (only 18 reviews at present on goodreads, 25 Jan 2013) has some stylish and European sensibilities added to the 'May-December' romance concept, although the girl in question is barely prepubescent and the guy, rather than being a white-haired dignitary, is a unattractive thirty-something.
put through rigorous Columbia Univ. writing training, resulting in a hidden little work; not known to many, but liked by its fans.
4/5. certainly not unforgettable, but skillful in places, and a solid debut.
