Speaking of Lou

Collection : Belfond Pointillés
Release date : 04/10/2018
A novel that raises the alert as to the place of women in contemporary society.
Lou is not yet 40 and has settled down with Marc, an older man whom she loves passionately. He has been her mentor and Pygmalion, and is the father of her two children. And then one day she comes to a realisation: she talks, but no one listens to her.... Lou is not yet 40 and has settled down with Marc, an older man whom she loves passionately. He has been her mentor and Pygmalion, and is the father of her two children. And then one day she comes to a realisation: she talks, but no one listens to her. She strains her ear to hear a familiar voice, she hopes to see a hand held out to her. Lou would like to rediscover those happy-go-lucky days, the simplicity of those summer evenings, but Marc is constantly invited to dinners, brunches, film premières and legion of honor ceremonies. Lou faithfully accompanies him, tottering on heels that are much too high for her.

Then one day she emerges from the shadows and starts frequenting Lucie, a woman with a bewitching smile. She pays no heed to the disapproving looks, the remarks or the repercussions.

In the style of a children’s tale, deceptively naive and terribly cruel, Julie Gouazé forcefully and authentically depicts the struggle of one woman against homophobia and speaks to us of the courage needed to leave everything behind when you have everything going for you.
