Event: Viv Groskop introduces Au Revoir, Tristesse 24/06/21
For the second of our Independent Bookshop Week Events we're proud to host Viv Groskop. Viv will be introducing her new book, Au Revoir, Tristesse, a blend of literary history, memoir and self-help that shows how French literature can bring humour, happiness and romance to our lives.
From the frothy hedonism of Colette and the wit of Cyrano de Bergerac to the intoxicating universe of Marguerite Duras and the heady passions of Les Liaisons dangereuses, Au Revoir Tristesse is a love letter to great French writers. With chapters on Marcel Proust, Victor Hugo, Gustave Flaubert, Stendhal, Honoré de Balzac, Albert Camus, and of course Françoise Sagan, this is a delectable read and one we're very excited to hear Viv talk about.
