May 10, 1981 was no ordinary day. For the first time in her life, Françoise, who was
married with two children and had been raised in a model right-thinking family,
was going to drop a pink voting slip into the ballot box. Mitterrand. She doesn’t
yet know that this first quake will soon be followed by another one: the departure
of her husband, who invited her to a restaurant to announce that he was filing for
a divorce. One world collapses, another is born. So Françoise decides to become a
left-wing woman. Her chosen mission is to take in lost children, victims of the 80s,
in order, perhaps, to get them back on track.
As her own children flirt with crossing the line, Françoise is obsessed with Victor,
the handsomest and most brilliant of them all. The one who seems destined for
greatness but who refuses to accept a helping hand. Can you save someone who
doesn’t want to be saved?
Paris, an urban forest filled with sprites and witches, peasants and nobility, is like a
character in this novel, an uncompromising portrait of Mitterrand-era France, with
glimpses of both violence and poetry.
