Summary
  • Leaving her family and London home to study in Paris, Emma Roberts soon discovers a diversion from her academics in the person of a new friend, Françoise Desnoyers, a free-spirited young woman who has a tense relationship with her mother
  • "At twenty-six, Emma Roberts comes to the painful realization that if she is ever to become truly independent, she must leave her comfortable London flat and venture into the wider world. This entails not only breaking free from a claustrophobic relationship with her mother, but also shedding her inherited tendency toward melancholy. Once settled in a small Paris hotel, Emma befriends Francoise Desnoyers, a vibrant young woman who offers Emma a glimpse into a turbulent life so different from her own. In this exquisite new novel of self-discovery, Booker Prize-winner Anita Brookner addresses one of the great dramas of our lives: growing up and leaving home."--Publisher's website
