About this book
A bleak and beautiful novel about a mother's love and irrational fears, told in a simple first person narrative of great power. Olmi is an acclaimed French writer and dramatist, and this is the first time this novel has been translated into English, (by Adriana Hunter).
A single mother takes her two sons on a trip to the seaside. They stay in a hotel, drink hot chocolate and go to the funfair. She wants to protect them from a cold and uncomprehending world. She knows that it will be the last trip for her boys.
