The idyllic life in a French-African settlement is rudely interrupted in 1915 by news of war in Europe.

Conchon, scénariste pour le cinéma, "sait raconter une histoire, lui donner son poids de cynisme et fouiner dans les recoins malodorants de la haute société" française, politique et immobilière.

Selon l'éditeur, il s'agit d'un grand roman à la Balzac, mouvementé et dru
