About the Author
Anna and Louise could be sisters, but they don’t know each other. They are both married with children, and for the most part, they are happy.
On almost the same day, Anna, a psychiatrist, crosses paths with Yves, a
writer, while Louise, a lawyer, meets Anna’s analyst, Thomas. Love at
first sight is still possible for those into their forties and
long-married. But when you have already mapped out a life path, a
passionate affair can come at a high price. For our four characters,
their lives are unexpectedly turned upside down by the deliciously
inconvenient arrival of love. For Anna, meeting Yves has brought a
flurry of excitement to her life and made her question her values, her
reliable husband, and her responsibilities to her children. For Louise, a
successful career woman in a stable and comfortable marriage, her
routine is uprooted by the youthful passion she feels for Thomas.
Thought-provoking, sophisticated, and, above all, amusing, this novel from Oulipo writer Herve Le Tellier captures the euphoria of desire through tender and unflinching portraits of husbands, wives, and lovers.
