Author(s): Anna Gavalda
I hadn't even sat down yet, one buttock still hovering, my hand on the car door, and already my sister-in-law was on the attack: "At last! Didn't you hear the horn? We've been waiting here for ten minutes!" "Good morning," I replied. On the car journey to a family wedding, Garance reflects on how adult life, with its disappointments and responsibilities, has not always gone to plan for herself or her three siblings. But just around the corner lies the chance for them to revisit their younger, carefree selves in a delightfully unplanned escapade.
Anna Gavalda is one of the most acclaimed authors writing in French today. In this exquisitely told story she explores the themes of time passing and the highs and lows of family life, with characteristic wit, warmth, and brilliant characterisation.
