Author(s): Yasmina Reza; Linda Asher (Translator)
Elisabeth, a pensive, memory-laden science professional in a long and tender marriage, has barely befriended their touching younger neighbour when in a fit of blind pain over a scornful scolding the man kills his beloved and appealing wife. Elisabeth is drawn, out of sympathy, to help her friend cover up his crime. Her account of her unaccountable impulse moves into a quick-moving, canny police procedural - humour and sorrow, life. An absorbing tale from the skilled hand of playwright/novelist Yasmina Reza.
