Faire les sucres
Faire les sucres
Money doesn't buy happiness, they say, but doesn't it give you the opportunity to stop and "think about yourself"? How can we not see the absurdity of this statement, "think of oneself", as if it were not what we already do most of the time?
In this choral novel about the gradual dislocation of a couple, Fanny Britt mercilessly digs into the question of our privileges. We meet Adam and Marion, whose successful life will be intertwined with that of Celia, who has understood something about the world that they don't yet know.
"Faire les sucres" moves briskly through the thriving Montreal of foodies and entertainers, visits a salted candy factory on the island of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, attends English choir rehearsals, and listens to the water rise in the trees of a maple grove in the Oka region. With her uncanny ability to orchestrate her characters' behaviours and reveal their innermost thoughts, Fanny Britt, scathing and tender, shows how our lives are intertwined with those of others, those we love and those we exploit.
