The Oceanides -- The circus -- Anne, Charlotte & Emily -- The abduction -- Aglaia's victory -- Her reign -- The field of chasms -- Kite & Aglaia -- The crown -- The child.
Betrayed by her fleeting first love and her father's cold rejection, Aglaia the Oceanide conceives at a very young age a fierce hatred of men. She is by turns a reluctant wife, a passionate lover, an absent mother, a heroic fighter, and a revolutionary queen--and through it all, her destiny is inexorably linked to the complexity of her character in this deeply human, contemporary, and iconoclastic comedy. Cartoonist Anne Simon showcases a deft touch in this astute dissection of human relationships, which weaves 19th century France, biting feminism, and the pop imagination of the Beatles into one deliciously philosophical farce, full of subversive twists and comical turns.
In English. Translated from French.
