Dining alone in an elegant Parisian brasserie, accountant Daniel Mercier can hardly believe his eyes when President François Mitterrand sits down to eat at the table next to him. After the presidential party has gone, Daniel discovers that Mitterrand’s black felt hat has been left behind. After a few moments’ soul-searching, Daniel decides to keep the hat as a souvenir of an extraordinary evening. It’s a perfect fit, and as he leaves the restaurant Daniel begins to feel somehow...different.

Couldn't hold my attention
Probably being French, as a non French person I didn't really appreciate why it would be so exciting to steal the presidents hat, I guess when your country has a queen, presidents aren't that important.
No I might try others
The narrators read very clearly although a bit flat at times.
I'm afraid I didn't listen to it all as I found it boring so couldn't answer this question.
There was far to much boring details, I Really don't need to know every movement a waiter made while opening a bottle or the number of the train they were waiting for, maybe someone who is interested in train numbers would find it fascinating!
