Fear and Trembling by Amelie Nothomb
Book DescriptionAccording to ancient Japanese protocol, foreigners deigning to approach the emperor did so only with fear and trembling. Terror and self-abasement conveyed respect. Amelie, our well-intentioned and eager young Western heroine, goes to Japan to spend a year working at the Yumimoto Corporation. Returning to the land where she was born is the fulfillment of a dream for Amelie; working there turns into comic nightmare. Alternately disturbing and hilarious, unbelievable and shatteringly convincing, "Fear and Trembling" will keep readers clutching tight to the pages of this taut little novel, caught up in the throes of fear, trembling, and, ultimately, delight."

The on-again/off-again friendship between Ptronille and the main character in the book, who happens to be a writer by the name of Amlie Nothomb, gives the story its verve and the novel its heart. A literary Thelma & Louise, with a little bit of French panache and a whole lot of champagne thrown in.
