Agnes Desarthe is a prize-winning author of children's books, among her published books for adults are 'Five Photos of My Wife' and 'Good Intentions'.

Review:

'Desarthe is a daring and imaginative writer. Through Max Opass, she lets her lucid prose plunder dreams and question the meaning of existence.' Observer 'A rare tribute to the love of a wife... Desarthe's novel, lucidly translated by Adriana Hunter, is delicate, subtle and full of charm.' Daily Mail 'Ageing and frailty, both physical and emotinal, are rarely presented with such sheer beauty. Five Photos of My Wife has a limpid, effortless elegance: prose by Chanel.' Scotland on Sunday
