Item description for Bonjour Tristesse by Francoise Sagan...

Set against the translucent beauty of France in summer, Bonjour Tristesse is a bittersweet tale narrated by Ccile, a seventeen-year-old girl on the brink of womanhood, whose meddling in her father's love life leads to tragic consequences.

Freed from boarding school, Ccile lives in unchecked enjoyment with her youngish, widowed father -- an affectionate rogue, dissolute and promiscuous. Having accepted the constantly changing women in his life, Ccile pursues a sexual conquest of her own with a "tall and almost beautiful" law student. Then, a new woman appears in her father's life. Feeling threatened but empowered, Ccile sets in motion a devastating plan that claims a surprising victim.

Deceptively simple in structure, Bonjour Tristesse is a complex and beautifully composed portrait of casual amorality and a young woman's desperate attempt to understand and control the world around her.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bonjour Tristesse?

Touching, Wonderful Story  Aug 26, 2008
I bought this book because someone suggested to me that it was the French, 50's version of my book. I was thrilled and delighted by the fast-paced writing, the compelling characters, the wonderful and touching story. What a compliment to be compared to Francoise Sagan! I'm only sorry that I didn't find Bonjour Tristesse sooner--it is a book I will definitely reread every few years.
Brilliantly written  Sep 21, 2007
Its hard to imagine Sagan was only 18 when writing this story, as the language is beautiful! I would definitely recommend this short read!
Loved the book  Sep 4, 2007
I find it hard to believe she wrote this without help because she was only seventeen. But regardless, this is a masterpiece, a classic.
Francoise Sagan  Aug 6, 2007
Very good book ! Although it is her first book, it is my favorite.
This book was great when I was 15  Nov 8, 2006
I found this book in one of our family bookcases when I was 15 and read it. There was a picture of a 17-year-old girl on the cover. I felt myself enthralled by the character and I imagined what she was like and kissing her. I believe she was dating an older man. I got pissed off and wanted to punch him out, and then she and I became girlfriend and boyfriend. Can one have a more rewarding experience than that when reading fiction? I doubt it.
