Your Father’s Room
Michel Deon, Julian Evans
‘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.
