Book Description

Au cours d'un dîner, Lucile rencontre Antoine, jeune éditeur parisien. Leur complicité se transforme vite en une fougueuse passion. Or, Lucile vit avec Charles, quinquagénaire élégant et fortuné qui l'entoure d'un amour désintéressé. Malgré sa profonde affection pour lui, lorsque Antoine lui demande de choisir, elle décide de quitter Charles. " Vous me reviendrez. Je n'ai qu'à attendre. " Charles n'en doute pas. Parce qu'il aime cette femme-enfant pour elle-même et non pour lui. Parce qu'il sait qu'un jour Antoine lui reprochera ses faiblesses et ses défauts.

About the Author

Françoise Sagan, de son vrai nom Françoise Quoirez, est née à Cajarc, dans le Lot. Sa carrière de femme de Lettres commence en 1954 avec la publication de Bonjour tristesse. Ce roman, en abordant explicitement la sexualité féminine avec un style désinvolte et mordant, provoque un véritable scandale. Récompensé la même année par le prix des Critiques, il devient l'emblème de toute la génération d'après-guerre et propulse son auteur au devant de la scène littéraire. Son œuvre compte aujourd'hui une trentaine de romans parmi lesquels on peut citer Aimez-vous Brahms..., publié en 1959 et porté à l'écran en 1963 par Anatole Litvak, Les merveilleux nuages (1973), Un orage immobile (1983), Les faux-fuyants (1991) ou encore Le miroir égaré (1996). Nouvelliste et auteur de théâtre, Françoise Sagan a écrit une dizaine de pièces et une biographie de Sarah Bernhardt publiée en 1987. Ce grand personnage de la scène culturelle française a également écrit le scénario du Landru de Claude Chabrol.Passionnée de sport automobile, l'auteur de Bonjour Tristesse a résidé de nombreuses années à Honfleur. En 1985, elle a reçu pour l'ensemble de son œuvre, le dix-neuvième prix de la Fondation du prince Pierre de Monaco. Françoise Sagan s'est éteinte le 24 septembre 2004 à l'âge de 69 ans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insight into life in Paris April 16 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Seeing that Amazon.com can be accessed throughout the entireworld, there are probably many people out there reading this articlenow who have never been to Paris. Although I have never personally lived among a group of people such as those depicted in La Chamade, Francoise Sagan gives us her insight into the lives of the people of Paris at the time that she was writing the novel. Through the eyes of Lucile, a young Parisian woman longing to find happiness, we begin to see a group of Parisians amongst which she spends a lot of her time. At a dinner one night with these friends, she encounters the young Antoine. In an attempt to find true happiness, she pursues a relationship with him, and then eventually learns more about what the true meaning of happiness really is for her. A very good book, and one that anyone from the intermediate-level French student to the native French speaker would benefit from. END

5.0 out of 5 stars More than you would think July 3 2003
By Tanya
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As terribly weary as I am of "pink novels", this book is far beyond the "romance" - it borders the philosophical/existential. It is not so much about Paris or particular characters or Lucile's meeting her lover - they are all just symbols used to question the search for happiness, and the terror of the routine. So convicing I couldn't put it down. But I don't think it makes you cry. Rather it makes you think. Lucile is fascinating, a weak/strong free/prisoner we've all met in real life. The rise of passion, the end of hope. What to surrender to, what is a victory, what is a capitulation? It is a story of disallusionment and my (Russian) translation of it was titled "Signal for Capitulation", which is strangely appropriate. No phisolophical answers in this book, no Kierkegaard-like essays, just vague questions, and quite a bit of pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars The sad story of broken love Jan. 2 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well, I guess Sagan's best novel is "Bonjour Tristesse" and this book is the second best. It's indeed touching and true to life. It's about the love which the two hove lost, such things really happen in our life. It's extremely sad and it makes you cry a bit if you are sensitive. It shows pure feelings. It's nice
