Fiction. Translated from the French by Anne-Laure Tissut and Laird Hunt. "As I was becoming a teenager, that is to say a serious person, he was becoming an eccentric, an inconsistent and flighty person. We missed each other."
In this story, conceived as a biographical hypothesis, a meeting between the author and his grandfather takes place posthumously. This quiet man crosses the edge of the twentieth century, slightly tangential to his family, giving the text its proper freedom, leaving fiction to remedy the hidden disorder of his life.
