"Malou" by Zaz Chalumeau

I met Zaz, a writer from Lorraine, at the writing salon l'Eté du Livre in Metz last June, when I bought her book "Mémoires d'un Labrador". I'm still reading this story (yes, I read slowly ... and extremely slowly in French), and I find it to be a heartwarming story from the point of view of a dog.

Zaz has just released her latest novel, Malou, the self-published sequel to La Lavandière d'Igney. The saga follows a family over the course of a century, and I believe Malou is the second of four volumes. If you're a Francophone, feel free to order her books directly from her.
