Winner Of The Prix Femina
In a small flat in Paris, a single mother, Nouk, lives with her son. As winter sets in, she invents a fairytale Christmas. But reality keeps breaking through the brittle facade that Nouk has constructed.
This bleakly tender novel tackles the complicated fears and emotions experienced by every lone parent. It follows the life of a woman at the edge of her resources: a mother with everything to lose.
A wry, heart-breaking account of a single mother at odds with the world, Losing Eugenio is the highly acclaimed winner of the Prix Femina and has already sold over 150,000 copies in France.
"Geneviève Brisac has the solid gifts of a novelist. Besides the ability to make herself small and to hide behind her characters, she can also turn the cold, objective - even ironic - sadness of her gaze upon the world."?Le Figaro Littéraire
"Geneviève Brisac writes like a slipped smile."?L'Express
Geneviève Brisac has written three novels, several children's books and is a contributor to the literary pages of Le Monde.
