Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "La condition pavillonnaire nous plonge dans la vie parfaite de M.-A., avec son mari et ses enfants, sa petite maison. Tout va bien et, cependant, il lui manque quelque chose. L'insatisfaction la ronge, la pousse à multiplier les exutoires: l'adultère, l'humanitaire, le yoga, ou quelques autres loisirs proposés par notre société, tous vite abandonnés. Le temps passe, rien ne change dans le ciel bleu du confort. L'héroïne est une velléitaire, une inassouvie, une Bovary... Mais pouvons-nous trouver jamais ce qui nous comble? Un roman profond, moderne, sensible et ironique sur la condition féminine, la condition humaine." -- goodreads.com
"The pavilion plunges us into the perfect life. With her husband and children, her small house. All is well and yet it lacks something. Dissatisfaction gnaws, increases: adultery, humanitarianism, yoga, or some other leisure activities offered by her company, all quickly abandoned. Time passes, nothing changes, the blue sky is not comfort.... the main character is not happy... can we ever find out what satisfies us? A deep romance, modern, sensitive and ironic, about the woman's condition, the human condition." -- translation of goodreads.com
