Product Description

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Is this a novel or a long, stream of consciousness poem? With fine twists of sentiment that range from those delicate, pristine, unreliable moments of late adolescence to those harsher insights of the same age, the book takes the reader on a spellbinding, emotionally volatile journey. Sagan renders scenes so poignantly one feels as if one is part of the same troubled triangle between the heroine, the father and the father's lover (roman a clef?). I have read this numerous times and have been deeply affected each time.

I found Bonjour Tristesse an incredibly moving and stimulating book, which I would recommend to anyone who is intruiged by the emotions that a young woman goes through during her adolescense. The book touched on love, her relationship with her father and the other women that enter her and her fathers life. Sagan writes with a flowing and very realistic style, which I found interesting to read. A really fresh and thought provoking book with an excellent ending.

Having only studied french for a few years, I was reluctant when my friend plopped this book down on my lap and said "You MUST read this." Nevertheless, I read it, and found a refreshing change from the abridged versions of classics I had been suffering. The plot was fresh and interesting, and the language not too difficult. I would recommend this book to just about anyone.
