La rentrée littéraire

After renewing Catrin's bus card I popped into the Virginmegastore for a swift browsette. Like the English, most French people have good food, dry homes, good health care and peaceful towns. And the books this year are about ? Les chagrins, broken relationships, families in crisis, dark threatening secrets from the past. It reminds me of a line from a Fauré song : "they do not seem to believe in their own happiness."

I did see one book that made me laugh ( see photo ) and another, "absolument débordé", that has become notorious.
