Translated from the French.
In 1950s France, Camille struggles to figure out who she is and where she fits in the world of her coastal working-class neighborhood. Her mother holds the family together, with the support of a group of women who talk over coffee and cigarettes each day. Her father, a war veteran, is largely silent except when his inner rage erupts in violence. Her sister, Ariane, provides comic relief, while her construction worker brother, Abel, is a lost soul who suffers from severe seizures. Camille herself can usually be found curled up with a book, observing everything. But an intellectual and sexual relationship with her dentist's wife opens a world of new possibilities to Camille. Where will this lead her? Suicide, murder, accidental death - all are possible in this unconventional narrative from Mireille Best.
