This book combines stories that focus on the way of life of villagers living in rural towns, but also stories of individuals living in cities, surrounded by cinemas and hospitals. The stories have a decidedly "French" flavor, each goes well beyond the concerns of provincial villagers to embrace global perspectives and universal values.

"[Desvignes] offers literary creations of the highest order... We can, as it were, experience vicariously the passions, the fears, the hopes of people who appear perhaps superficially different from us, but whose humanity we all share." - Prof. Michael C. Oswald "In this delightful collection of short fiction, Lucette Desvignes is at the top of her game. With compelling characters, timeless themes, and unique and sometimes unexpected plot twists, Desvignes keeps her stories fresh, entertaining and often mesmerizing." - Prof. Edie Norlin Ohio State University"
