Eric Emmanuel Schmitt's bestselling novels and plays have been translated into more than twenty languages and produced in thirty-five countries. Oscar and the Lady in Pink has sold over one million copies worldwide.
"* 'Oscar and the Lady in Pink combines story-telling skill with the elegant questioning that Schmitt learnt from his studies of 18th-century French philosophers... When children write to him, they say that, even if they have not been ill themselves, the book has helped them speak about their parents and about solitude, hope and mystery.' Daily Telegraph * 'What's brilliant about Oscar is that we all know we should live each day as our last and we don't. Then you read this book and feel you must try.' Janet McTeer"
