Praise for Life Form

"Brilliant! Life Form is an excellent novel."
--L'Express "In Life Form Nothomb has chosen, with a certain glee, to blend the fictional and the biographical by utilizing an art form in which she excels: letter writing."
--Le Monde "Am lie Nothomb demonstrates a real oppenness towards others, to their differences and their shortcomings."
--Le Temps (Switzerland) "Nothomb is whimsical and fanciful, excessive and eccentric."
--Le Soir Magazine Praise for Am lie Nothomb "[Tokyo Fianc e is] a spare, elegant novel."
--New York Times Books Review (Editors Choice) "Tokyo Fianc e is a light, lovely little romance, winnigly told and entertaining."
--Financial Times "Amelie Nothomb is such an utter astonishment, the shock of reading her for the first time is like realizing you have inadvertently missed a whole movement, or century, in the scheme of things"
--Scotland on Sunday "Her will-mannered prose, her clear and accomplished style, her aristocratic culture of a bygone day (Nothomb is the daughter of a Belgian diplomat)- perhaps this is why she has touched such a large audience in France, nostalgic for a time when French literature was preeminent among the arts and in the world"
--Boston Review "Read Amelie Nothomb! It's a bit like opening a bag full of surprises."
--Le Globe-Lecteur
