A Brief Stay with the Living [9780571214952]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Marie Darrieussecq tells the story of a single day in the life of a mother and her three grown-up daughters. Now scattered between the South of France and Buenos Aires, all four women are still connected by an incident from their past - a terrible event that the story gradually reveals . . .
AUTHOR: Marie Darrieussecq was born in 1969 in Bayonne, France. She is a graduate of the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. Her debut novel, Pig Tales (1996), was published in 34 countries and became the most popular first novel in France since the 1950s. Her second novel, My Phantom Husband (1998), became an immediate bestseller. Her third novel, Breathing Underwater, prompted Francis Gilbert in The Times to declare that 'there are very few writers who may have changed my perception of the world, but Darrieussecq is one of them'. Her fourth novel, A Brief Stay with the Living, is published in June 2003.
