    Bonjour Tristesse and A Certain Smile

    Published when she was only eighteen, Françoise Sagan's astonishing first novel, Bonjour Tristesse became an instant bestseller. It tells the story of Cécile, who leads a carefree life with her widowed father and his young mistresses until, one hot summer on the Riviera, he decides to remarry - with devastating consequences. In A Certain Smile Dominique, a young woman bored with her lover, begins an encounter with an older man that unfolds in unexpected and troubling ways.

    These stylish, shimmering and amoral tales had explicit sexual scenes removed for English publication in the 1950s. Now this fresh and accurate new translation presents the uncensored text of Sagan's masterpieces in full for the first time.
