9781910477342: Your Father's Room

A touching fictionalized memoir and masterly evocation of period from one of the towering French literary figures of the past century.

A patchwork of events narrated from young Edouard's perspective give an intimate view of life in Paris and Monaco in the interwar years. As Teddy makes sense of his bourgeois yet unconventional world, we witness his relationship with his parents and others, and the key moments that will mould his personality.

Michel Déon is a member of the Académie française. Born in Paris in 1919, he is the author of more than fifty works. He lives in Ireland.

About the Author:

Born in Paris in 1919, Michel Déon is the author of more than 50 works of fiction and non-fiction, and a member of the Académie française. His 1970 novel Les Poneys Sauvages was awarded the prestigious Prix Interallié and in 1973 Le Taxi Mauve (later made into a film starring Fred Astaire and Charlotte Rampling) won the Grand Prix du Roman de l’Académie Française. The Foundling Boy was published in 1975, with the sequel The Foundling's War published two years later. Déon lives in Ireland with his wife, Chantal, and their horses.

Julian Evans: Julian Evans is a writer and translator. He lives in Bristol.

Review:

Praise for The Foundling Boy and The Foundling's War:

Our lives would be all the richer if we read a Michel Déon novel – a modern classic’ William Boyd

‘I loved this book for the way, in its particularities and its casual narration, it admitted me to a world I knew nothing about, and the many ways it made me care. It is not just a glimpse into the past, but the study of the heart of a man and his times.’ Paul Theroux

‘Inspired by Henry Fielding’s 18th-century novel Tom Jones, about a similarly clueless but likable character making his way on the road of life. As witty as its English forebear but with French savoir-faire, The Foundling Boy may win new readers for books translated from French' New York Times

‘Quiet, wryly funny prose ... a delight’ Independent on Sunday

‘It is shamefully parochial of us that this eminent writer has been so ignored by the anglophone world’ Sunday Times

‘A big-hearted coming-of-age shaggy-dog story ... [Déon’s] novel leaves you feeling better about life’ The Spectator

‘Remarkable ... Rooted in 19th-century realism but profoundly subversive of its conventions ... Deserves a place alongside Flaubert’s Sentimental Education and Le Grand Meaulnes.’ New Statesman
