Bonjour Tristesse by Francoise Sagan was such a delectable read. A girl who loves her father too much tries to keep him all to herself when he’s tied tied between two women. With a Blossom Dearie jazz prose style with Parisian summer feels of the warm weather and the cool waters, this little novel has become an instant favorite of mine that vaguely reminds me of Fante’s Ask the Dust. Recommended.
