Overview

Following siblings Marie-Ange and Jean-Noel Schoudler, this gripping family saga is set in Paris at the dawn of World War II. The brother and sister debut in society the same day their grandmother dies; meet old acquaintances of the family, including minister Simon Lachaume and poet Ines Sandoval; and befriend unique characters such as Lord Pemrose, who introduces them to the decadent circles of the international jet-set. Reflecting on the degeneration of the social class that had hitherto governed the destinies of France, this work masterfully portrays the progressive decline in Parisian society.

 

Siguiendo a los hermanos Marie-Ange y Jean-Noel Schoudler, esta apasionante saga familiar tiene lugar en París en los albores de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Los hermanos debutan en la sociedad el mismo día en que muere su abuela; conocen a viejos conocidos de la familia, incluyendo el ministro Simon Lachaume y la poeta Inés Sandoval; y se hacen amigos de personajes únicos como el Señor Pemrose, quien los introduce en el mundo decadente de la jet-set internacional. Reflexionando sobre la degeneración de la clase social que había regido hasta ahora los destinos de Francia, este trabajo retrata magistralmente la disminución progresiva de la sociedad parisina.
