The book has already been ordered in our household and we all look forward to reading it! Le Tour du Roitelet assiégé is in upheaval as we speak and there will be no peace ever for those two because danger always comes from where they least expect it. Ah, le Perfide Albion attaqué par un courageux français.

Without thinking, she takes the body and makes it disappear, before joining the others in the restaurant as if nothing had happened.

How does one make a body disappear and without the body, how can one prove that it was an accident?

frencheuropean wrote:The critics are good, the young writter talentuous and Gallimard is the best known edition. A success most probably with the Mccann story seen with the same eyes than us, "nuttters" on the net. Here is the French summary. Could Anna translate please. Very interesting:


"Enfant étrange, taciturne et solitaire, Madec vit à Granville, avec ses parents et ses deux frères. Alors que la famille est en vacances en Toscane avec un couple d’amis, Madec manque de se noyer dans la piscine. Il est sauvé par un Anglais, Ron Murdoch, un repris de justice qui a purgé une longue peine en Angleterre pour pédophilie. Un soir, tandis que ses parents dînent au restaurant avec leurs amis, Madec se tue accidentellement dans la cuisine du bungalow. Revenant à l’improviste au milieu du repas, Laurence trouve son fils mort sur le carrelage. Sans réfléchir, elle emporte le corps et le fait disparaître, avant de rejoindre les autres au restaurant comme si de rien n’était. De retour au bungalow, la disparition déclenche une alerte générale. Battues, recherches, enquête policière, paparazzi : en quelques jours, les parents deviennent des vedettes. L’oncle de l’enfant orchestre une campagne de presse qui émeut le monde entier - jusqu’au pape Jean- Paul II. Diligentée par un inspecteur italien, l’enquête est suivie en haut lieu par la France. L’Anglais Murdoch est vite accusé d’avoir enlevé et tué Madec. Son passé plaide contre lui… S’inspirant d’un fait divers récent, Arthur Dreyfus décrit avec une ironie souvent cruelle cette famille figée dans son silence et ses lâchetés, et avec une poésie prenante la solitude de Madec. Progressivement s’installe un climat proche de la folie, dans lequel la mère, énigmatique et silencieuse, joue un rôle central. On comprendra peu à peu pourquoi elle cache la mort de son enfant…"

Will do this tomorrow, frencheuropean. Thanks for posting!

I've had a look on Amazon UK and they've got one used copy for £45! Forty-five quid!

Amazon France has the book at €16 and a bit. So, I reckon I'll order it from there!

I'd say 'got rid of,' the body.

Agree - lost in translation? But the question still remains - how does one get rid of a body 'without thinking', which suggests a spontaneous act, especially in a place where one has only been for a few days and which would therefore be unfamiliar? How the body was concealed and ultimately disposed of is surely a key question which has to be addressed by the investigating authorities. Why this tendency to assume an accident in fact?

Clarry is more likely to be

"It is I... LeClar"
and as they gather around, as 'kate ' shall say it only once' (and wont answer any further questions) they then discuss the hiding of 'La Fallen Madarcy, With the big colombola"
It is then Goncarlo and the rest of the police which would be portrayed as ze german swine!

I think we'll have to translate as something like, 'without giving it a second thought, she removed the body and got rid of it.'

It would, wouldn't it! But that's how the character is being portrayed. She took the body and got rid of it and then went back to the dinner table.

Well, it is supposed to be a novel and not a true story. I guess the writer is allowed to make stuff up.

Sadly my French is poor to non existent, so I do hope that we get the chance to read a version in English at some point. I'm excited that it's been printed and sold and sad that I can't read it - yet.
