Description

Having collected, among other things, cocktail sticks, electoral campaign badges, paintings of moored ships, rabbits’ feet, noises at five in the morning, Croatian maxims, staircase ornaments, the first pages of novels, the labels on melons, birds’ eggs, moments with you, hangmen’s nooses, Hector finally falls in love. It’s the way she washes windows that does it for him. And so begins his new infatuation, a collection (and recollection) of beautifully observed moments spent observing his wife’s every move. A stirring portrayal of erotic obsession and its whims.

Publisher Review

'How can anyone resist it? It's light, quick, funny and unlike anything else.' Le Figaro'A book worthy of Woody Allen.' Glamour'Absurd, funny, eccentric ... this little world has seduced critics, filmmakers and an ever-larger public.' Le Monde'David Foenkinos is in a league of his own. If we had to find his counterparts on the world stage, they would be Philip Roth and Thomas Pynchon.' Elle'Read it, it's hilarious!' Le Parisien
