LITERARY FICTION

The first time she receives an anonymous love letter, Sissi is furious. For a mailwoman, this is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. In her fifties, with a physique far from that of Romy Schneider, divorced and bearing the marks of her son’s accident, she really wants to find out who dares to play with her feelings!

Fortunately, Sissi can count on her colleagues – especially Simon, her best friend. It’s with him that Sissi can discuss comfortably about their daily life at the post office, their world. But also with Dine, who can barely be seen behind his tattoos, Luc, with a sarcastic humor, Paolo, the eco baker philosopher, and Martin, the father of a family on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

However, when more and more passionate letters come in, Sissi’s friends get organized and decide to conduct an investigation. And when the final revelation comes… Well, they might have preferred being kept in the dark.

With the humor and tenderness that always characterize his writing, Nicolas Delesalle paints deeply touching portraits of women and men who are true to life, confirming he knows how to give wings to souls in pain.

Born in 1972, Nicolas Delesalle was a reporter for Télérama and director of Télérama 60 years, published by Éditions Les Arènes before joining Paris Match. No Longer Lives at the Indicated Address is his fourth novel.
