La chamade by Françoise Sagan( Book )

Like many of Sagan's novels, this is a story of lost love. A couple meet and move in together, but the woman cannot get used to his life, his working-class existence. She leaves her lover to return to her affair with a man of means. Ostensibly, she is rejecting her lover because she feels stifled by his position in society. But the class differences are metaphor for the quality of the love, with a woman deciding to be with a man who loves her for who she is rather than as an object of affection, merely the focus of a selfish love. She wants to be with the one who doesn't ask her to change

"The obsessive jealousy of a rich young American Adonis drives his Parisian wife to the extreme of retaliation.

Une certaine dramaturgie des coeurs et des corps, comme l'écrit Bernard Pivot. Les amours théâtrales d'un auteur dramatique et d'une comédienne. Mais surtout, au delà des marivaudages et de l'introspection, l'auteur s'attache à ce qu'il peut y avoir d'incertain, de rusé, de cruel, de pitoyable et d'émouvant dans l'incessant combat d'une passion. Un roman d'amour dans lequel l'érotisme est volontairement presque absent

"Gilles Lantier is thirty-five, attractive, with a beautiful mistress and a job in Paris as a journalist. He seems to have all that life can offer. But suddenly he is overwhelmed by despair. Nothing seems worth while. In panic at his boredom, and hating Eloïse, his model girlfriend, he flees for some peace to his sister and her dull husband in the provinces. Here he meets Nathalie, the wife of a country lawyer. She falls deeply in love with him, a passion to which he soon responds. But back in Paris her innate goodness contrasts oddly with the frivolity of Gilles's life. Soon it seems as if their relationships is doomed, as if their happiness is a mere gleam of sunlight on cold water"--Page 4 of cover

Un sang d'aquarelle : roman by Françoise Sagan( Book )

Le héros de ce roman de Sagan, qui a pour cadre historique la période de l'occupation, est un monstre sacré, metteur en scène célèbre, d'origine germano-américaine, qui accepte de tourner des films pour l'Allemagne nazie. Un personnage fracassant, doué pour le plaisir et l'amour, hanté par une nostalgie d'héroïsme. Christine Clerc a trouvé la formule-choc pour résumer notre opinion : La "petite musique" de Sagan a trouvé une grosse caisse. Intérêt littéraire moyen, mais dans le genre "roman pour le grand public", une réussite
