There many numerous and vivid characters here especially in the sections with a Parisian setting. (For some reason I really enjoyed his nasty uncle Yves.) But it is the author’s clear-eyed and subtle depiction of his parents (I presume!) that was most compelling. Roland and Marité are the kind of people not to be forgotten once met.
The contrast between the surprisingly grim Paris of the decade after the War and the new, shiny and antiseptic suburbs of post-war America is full of witty insights and avoids the usual stereotypes. (It also doesn’t hurt that Sagnier has a fun way with words often causing me to laugh out loud.)
If you having any interest at all in the French language or French culture or maybe just visited Paris once, this book will be a pleasure to read.
