A Literary AffairBook - 1979
Marie-Claire Blais sets the action in Paris, a city idealised by Mathieu Lelièvre, a young Quebecois who travels to France. His stay in the French capital allows the author to characterise the city and the characters living in it. Through the evocation of space this novel questions traditional stereotypes, France’s national identity, and it highlights the hypocrisy and the injustices that characterize the high-classes of Paris.
