The book
One can never know oneself, but only tell oneself – Simone de Beauvoir
In 50 short texts, Géraldine Dormoy delivers the portrait of an adolescence in France during the early 1990s. Through this portrait of her former self, she is also drawing the contours of her future self as a woman. Which images, which phrases, which objects and which atmospheres and which believes represent the outlines of our future self by orienting our development in one specific direction? Which are the points of no return that determine who we are going to be? And what are the things, ideas and atmospheres distinctive for the last decade of the 20th century?
By going back in time to rediscover the woman in the making, Géraldine Dormoy also questions the woman she has become. She especially reflects on the enormous impact of writing for assessing the outlines of her personality and affirming her own existence through creation.
“The silly Age” conjures the universe of adolescence with all the impressions and sensations of a 14 year old girl, a girl that we all can relate to, who exemplifies the characteristic traits of the 1990s as well as the timeless trials and tribulations of every young woman coming of age.
