For me, this is some of her finest work, as odd as that may sound. She is brutally honest, she is insightful, she is routine, she has nothing to hide and that is unusual for a writer in her position. Even if you are not a fan of her work, I feel with this book you will become a fan of Francoise Sagan, as a person.
