Автор Anna Gavalda



Following the publication of Anna Gavalda's international bestseller, "Hunting and Gathering", this book introduces us to Anna Gavalda's witty and dazzling collection of stories, "I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere", together with her heartbreaking and poignant novella, "Someone I Loved" - both published in the UK for the first time.
"I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere" explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother's plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Gavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing, and loneliness.
"Someone I Loved" is a hauntingly intimate look at the intolerably painful, yet sometimes valuable consequences that adultery can have on a marriage and the individuals involved. A simple tale, yet long in substance, "Someone I Loved" ends like most great love affairs, forever leaving you wanting just one more moment.

Camille is doing her best to disappear. She barely eats, works at night as a cleaner and lives in a tiny attic room. Philibert Marquet de La Durbellière is a stammering, erudite aristocrat who sells postcards outside a museum. One evening he overcomes his own excruciating reticence to rescue Camille, unconscious, from her freezing garret, and install her in the large, ornate apartment he is caretaking downstairs. He already has an unlikely flatmate, the foul-mouthed, talented working-class young chef, Franck, who is made more obnoxious by guilt about the beloved grandmother he's had to put in a home. Together, this curious, damaged little quartet may be able to face the world.
Gorgeously original, full of wry humour and razor-sharp observation, redolent of Paris, its foibles, its food and its neglected corners, "Hunting and Gathering" is a universal story about despair, love and the virtues of ensemble-playing in a naughty world.
It's a big novel that you will not want to put down.
