Description

‘You can’t possibly remember. You weren’t even a year old…’ Edouard looks back on his 1920s childhood spent in Paris and Monte Carlo. Within a bourgeois yet unconventional upbringing, ‘Teddy’, an observant and sensitive boy, must deal with not just the universal trials of growing up, but also the sudden tragedy that strikes at the heart of his family.

Publisher Review

'Wryly funny prose ... a delight' Independent on Sunday; 'It is shamefully parochial of us that this eminent writer has been so ignored' Sunday Times; 'A big-hearted coming-of-age shaggy-dog story ... leaves you feeling better about life' The Spectator; 'Deserves a place alongside Flaubert's Sentimental Education and Le Grand Meaulnes' New Statesman
