About this product
- Description<b>Even before it was adapted into the Oscar-minated film starring Juliette Biche and Johnny Depp, Joanne Harris'<i>New York Times </i>bestsellingvel<i>Chocolat</i>entranced readers with its mix of hedonism, whimsy, and, of course, chocolate.</b> In tiny Lansquenet, where thing much has changed in a hundred years, beautiful newcomer Vianne Rocher and her exquisite chocolate shop arrive and instantly begin to play havoc with Lenten vows. Each box of luscious bonbons comes with a free gift: Vianne's uncanny perception of its buyer's private discontents and a clever, caring cure for them. Is she a witch? Soon the parish longer cares, as it abandons itself to temptation, happiness, and a dramatic face-off between Easter solemnity and the pagan gaiety of a chocolate festival. <i>Chocolat</i>'s every page offers a description of chocolate to melt in the mouths of chocoholics, francophiles, armchair gourmets, cookbook readers, and lovers of passion everywhere. It's a must for anyone who craves an escapist read, and is a bewitching gift for any holiday.
- Author Biography<b>Joanne Harris</b> is the author of the Whitbread Award-nominated <i>Chocolat</i> (made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp) and eleven other bestselling novels.
