A vivid recreation of the interwar period, Michel Deon's fictionalised memoir is a touching and very true depiction of boyhood and how our early experiences affect us. Edouard (Michel Deon's real name) looks back on his 1920s childhood spent in Paris and Monte Carlo. Within a bourgeois yet unconventional upbringing, 'Teddy', an observant and sensitive boy, must deal with not just the universal trials of growing up, but also the sudden tragedy that strikes at the heart of his family.
"Our lives would be all the richer if we read a Michel DÃ©on novel." - William Boyd
