            What do you do when a ghost from the past comes back the moment you least expect?

In 2007, while traveling through Canada promoting his latest book, the novelist Philippe Besson found himself face to face with Paul Darrigrand, a man he was madly in love with as a teen and with whom he lost all contact after they broke up eighteen years earlier. Is it a fortuitous meeting? No, Paul came on purpose. What was he seeking to revive, he who had ended their relationship without any explanation? For a few moments, time stops, emotions come tumbling out, words stream forth involuntarily. Troubled by this sudden encounter, Philippe invites Paul to have dinner with him. But it is a dangerous plan, with each bringing their partner in tow. A few hours later, an improbable quartet—Paul and his wife Isabelle, and Philippe and his partner Antoine—sit down together for a dinner in which every word, every look, every moment of silence will be scrutinized, weighed, interpreted. How can you evoke the past without causing a scene? Between remorse and nostalgia, half-veiled lies and enigmatic phrases, the truth must take a tortuous path in order to finally heal old wounds. To end his trilogy that began with “Enough with Your Lies” followed by A Certain Paul Darrigrand, Philippe Besson has chosen the sobriety of closed doors, respecting the constraint of the unities of action, time and place that imparts this emotional reunion with a highly dramatic tension. Skillfully manipulating with the suspense and distraction typical of a play, it is with a great psychological finesse and a deep understanding of love that Besson offers this consideration of how the past affects in a writer’s life and work.
