loved reading it with Conor. He had interesting things to say about how the main character believes that falling in love is the way out of the hardships of her life. I realize how that is still often the female perspective. It felt confused to Conor, who, while sensitive, is far more practical than the heroine of Kiffe Kiffe. The book while perhaps not autobiographical, draws on the writer's experiences growing up in the projects outside Paris. We had a good discussion comparing this book to Catcher in the Rye, as well as the book's perspectives on marriage and heterosexual realtionships.
