En fouillant dans son bureau, j'ai trouvé cette feuille. Je me demande ce qu'elle raconte de beau...

I get the feeling that the "beau" here is not simply used in the sense of "bon / agréable", but rather this is a set expression.

Your feeling is right. That's a set expression here.

The meaning is equivalent to:

Je me demande bien ce qu'elle raconte.

Je me demande ce qu'elle peut raconter.

Je me demande ce qu'elle raconte d'intéressant.

  • Hi. In my example, the subject is a thing (feuille); Can the subject be a person as well? "Je me demande ce que Sophie raconte de beau..." Sep 25, 2017 at 21:21
  • Yes, absolutely.
