Long Stem Rose

A novel by

The old landlord is dead, his tenants have looted the chateau; the heir and his beautiful Irish wife Helene are installed in the Big House in Brittany with their modern pine furniture, their revolting teenage children and Tante Ruby, the self-appointed matriarch who functions on monumental snobbery and a succession of pretty toy-boys. While Helene daydreams the summer away to an old Leonard Cohen tape, life goes on around her as her family, neighbours and the xenophobic villagers prepare, variously, for the comedy, tragedy and farce that will be their Bastille Day celebrations, eventually coming to terms in their individual ways with the realities of end-of-century Europe.
