A wacky novel around romantic relationships. — Spectacles

The novel that will comfort the Bridget Jones in you! An aerial and sour book, to savor as a treat. Le Point

How do you write a treatise on perfect love when your own love life is in a mess? This is the challenge which Gilda sets herself, despite having once again disregarded the warnings of her female friends and fallen in love with a man she met on holiday – another one of those ‘impossible’ types.

But suddenly a voice insinuates itself into Gilda’s romantic delirium: a certain ‘Lady’ who tries to dampen her ardour and becomes the secret voice of reason and circumspection. Above all, Lady describes the flip side of things, which Gilda never broaches. Who, for example, is this Jérôme with whom she spends so much time?
