In questa raccolta di racconti la Sagan tenta di raccontare il ricordo dell'amore nelle membra invecchiate del ceto borghese, palesemente annoiato da se stesso e dalla propria vita.
Raramente è l'amore realizzato nel presente (forse l'eccezione è Il cielo d'Italia), anzi: è un amore congelato, appassito dal tempo, il tipico rapporto affettuoso ma di freddi spiriti fra un marito e una moglie che non sembrano avere più tanto da spartire su un piano intimo, soffocati dalla loro stessa routine insens

This book written in 1975 is a compilation of short stories - and if one misses the way Françoise Sagan usually unfolds her deceptively simple stories over the course of an entire book, finding all her usual themes in each one of those stories is quite intriguing, delightful, and interesting.

Handsomely written from the era of 1975. Especially touched with stories that shows ordinary scenes from everyday lives. A clipped scene from our lives, if written by someone like Sagan, could be a masterpiece.

Mi è bastato il primo racconto di questa raccolta per trovarmi da subito immersa nell'atmosfe ...more
Zéro Janvier
Un recueil de nouvelles de Françoise Sagan, qui vont du sympathique au franchement oubliable. Rien de terriblement passionnant dans l'ensemble.
