Endearing, self-absorbed, seventeen-year-old CÃcile is the very essence of untroubled amorality. Freed from the stifling constraints of boarding school, she joins her father—a handsome, still-young widower with a wandering eye—for a carefree, two-month summer vacation in a beautiful villa outside of Paris with his latest mistress, Elsa. CÃcile cherishes the free-spirited moments she and her father share, while plotting her own sexual adventures with a "tall and almost beautiful" law student. But the arrival of her late mother's best friend, Anne, intrudes upon a young girl's pleasures. And when a relationship begins to develop between the adults, CÃcile and her lover set in motion a plan to keep them apart...with tragic, unexpected consequences.

The internationally beloved story of a precocious teenager's attempts to understand and control the world around her, Françoise Sagan's Bonjour Tristesse is a beautifully composed, wonderfully ambiguous celebration of sexual liberation, at once sympathetic and powerfully unsparing.

About the Author:

Françoise Sagan, de son vrai nom Françoise Quoirez, est née à Cajarc, dans le Lot. Sa carrière de femme de Lettres commence en 1954 avec la publication de Bonjour tristesse. Ce roman, en abordant explicitement la sexualité féminine avec un style désinvolte et mordant, provoque un véritable scandale. Récompensé la même année par le prix des Critiques, il devient l'emblème de toute la génération d'après-guerre et propulse son auteur au devant de la scène littéraire. Son œuvre compte aujourd'hui une trentaine de romans parmi lesquels on peut citer Aimez-vous Brahms..., publié en 1959 et porté à l'écran en 1963 par Anatole Litvak, Les merveilleux nuages (1973), Un orage immobile (1983), Les faux-fuyants (1991) ou encore Le miroir égaré (1996). Nouvelliste et auteur de théâtre, Françoise Sagan a écrit une dizaine de pièces et une biographie de Sarah Bernhardt publiée en 1987. Ce grand personnage de la scène culturelle française a également écrit le scénario du Landru de Claude Chabrol.Passionnée de sport automobile, l'auteur de Bonjour Tristesse a résidé de nombreuses années à Honfleur. En 1985, elle a reçu pour l'ensemble de son œuvre, le dix-neuvième prix de la Fondation du prince Pierre de Monaco. Françoise Sagan s'est éteinte le 24 septembre 2004 à l'âge de 69 ans.
