The Strange Case of the Composer and His Judge: A Novel - Patricia Duncker This is not a book I would normally pick up to read on my own. When I did try it out and I found I couldn't put it down. It is a strange tale about the Judge (a little like the district attorney in the US) and a Composer (again, to me, in the US he would have been called a conductor). Once you get passed the little language issues and pull out your dictionary, the story is truly enjoyable. I found myself thinking about these characters long after I put the book down. I would love to read more about the main character, Dominique Carpentier.
