Francoise Sagan | Bonjour Tristesse
Bonjour Tristesse (English: "Hello Sadness") is a novel by Françoise Sagan. Published in 1954, when the author was only 18, it was an overnight sensation. The title is derived from a poem by Paul Éluard, "À peine défigurée", which begins with the lines "Adieu tristesse/Bonjour tristesse...
17-year-old Cécile spends her summer in a villa on the French Riviera with her father Raymond and his current mistress, the young, superficial, fashionable Elsa, who gets on well with Cécile. Raymond is an attractive, worldly, amoral man who excuses his serial philandering with an Oscar Wilde quote about sin: "Sin is the only note of vivid colour that persists in the modern world." Cécile says, "I believed that I could base my life on it", and accepts their lifestyle as typical. One of its advantages for her is that her father, who has no intellectual interests, does not care if she studies or not. Another is that he leaves her a free hand at attracting men. Though she initially tries men of her father's age, in the next villa to theirs is a young man in his 20s, Cyril, with whom she starts a romance.
