"What happens when two sets of parents meet up do deal with the unruly behavior of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly?

Dawn, dusk or night : a year with Nicolas Sarkozy by Yasmina Reza ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An unorthodox (and candid and witty) portrait of a man in his quest for ultimate power. In 2006, Yasmina Reza, the most celebrated playwright in France, asked Nicolas Sarkozy a simple question: Would he allow her to spend the next year with him and his team as he campaigned for the French presidency? His response was an unqualified yes. To the alarm of his advisers, and the consternation of many of her friends, who feared she was making a pact with the devil, she picked up her notebook and her pencil, and off she went. She was not simply an observer of Sarkozy's rise to power. Rather, hers is the account of a brilliant woman of letters dancing in orbit with the most powerful man in France. Their casual exchanges, her remarkable insights, their phenomenal experience exist as a play of words and glances, framed as scenes from a headlong drama.--From publisher description

3 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A train compartment. A man and a woman. In a series of dazzling internal monologues, the man, a novelist, muses on his latest work, contemplates the futility of writing, and considers his life in terms of his friends, his daughter, her lover, and the workings of Ex-Lax on his digestive system. The woman thinks about her life, her loves, and her friendships in the full knowledge that the man she is facing is the novelist she admires and would love to speak to, and whose latest work she has tucked in her handbag. Christopher Hampton's elegant translation of Yasmina Reza's sharp, witty and sexy play explores the "nostalgia for what might happen".--From publisher description
