One star awake /

Andrew Meehan.
Bibliographic Details
Main Creator: Meehan, Andrew, 1971- author.
Summary:As far as anyone can tell, the young heroine of One star awake survived some kind of trauma but her memory didn't. On the day she came to, she was in the kitchen of Parisian restaurant chopping vegetables like an absolute pro. She knows she is Irish because she pronounces oil as aisle--otherwise she has a defiant lack of curiosity about her own past. Her present is taken care of by her strident boss, Ségo, and her guileless American boyfriend, Lowell. One Good Friday morning she sees a familiar face in a queue in a pâtisserie. She follows the man -- whom she christens 'Eagleback'-- across Paris' 11th arrondissement and, over the course of a sticky summer, discovers what they know about each other. Her curiosity starts to grow and she begins to solve the emotional puzzle of how she came to be in Ségo's restaurant in the first place. Called "very funny, deliciously written, and deeply atmospheric in its Parisian setting" by author Kevin Barry, One star awake is an emotional journey that combines both mystery and humor into one captivating narrative. Surprising, moving and persistently witty, One star awake is a novel that's simply impossible to put down.
