La Fille du train

Rachel tries to forget her failed marriage by observing the lives of others. During her train ride home, through the train car window, she witnesses a scene that will transform her life. A Hitchcock-like suspense novel with a trap- and trick-filled plot, this English best-seller is entirely effective.

When he was a child, François-Xavier always kept a book in the pocket of his jeans. However, for the first decade of his working life, he put his love of books aside to embark on a successful career in human resources. At age 34, deciding that life was too short not enjoy every moment of it, François-Xavier quit his position, moved to Toulouse, and opened his own bookstore. Six years later, while L'Autre Rive was thriving in the Pink city, François-Xavier heard that the French Embassy was looking for someone to run a future bookshop, and he moved to New York in August of 2013. The fine selection of books on display at Albertine is a reflection of his hard work.
