The Comforters

Author:

Muriel Spark

Synopsis:

Caroline Rose is plagued by the tapping of typewriter keys and the strange, detached narration of her every thought and action. Caroline has an unusual problem - she realises she is in a novel. Her fellow characters also seem deluded: Laurence, her former lover, finds diamonds in a loaf of bread - has his elderly grandmother hidden them there? And Baron Stock, her bookseller friend, believes he is on the trail of England's leading Satanist. In Muriel Spark's brilliant first novel, the only things that aren't ambiguous are her matchless originality and glittering wit.

It's summertime in the French Pyrenees, and the mountain commune of Fogas is EN FETE. But Christian Dupuy has no time for the frivolity of LES VACANCES.

With moves afoot to wipe his community from the map, Christian will have to enter the fray once more if he wishes to save the place he cherishes. In the midst of a sweltering heatwave, and with the residents of Fogas at each other's throats over their future, the lovesick and embattled deputy mayor is forced to decide if all really is fair in love and war.

The French Postmistress

Author:

Julia Stagg

Synopsis:

When her post office burns down, postmistress Veronique starts lobbying for its replacement. But her fellow residents of the small commune of Fogas in the French Pyrenees are too preoccupied to rally to her cause. Mayor Serge Papon, overwhelmed by grief at the death of his wife, has lost his JOIE DE VIVRE and all taste for village politics (and croissants), and it seems as though deputy mayor Christian (whose TENDRESSE for Veronique makes him her usual champion) will soon be saying AU REVOIR to the mountain community. Add to this a controversial government initiative to reintroduce bears to the area, and soon the inhabitants are at loggerheads, threatening the progress of the sacred Tour de France and the very existence of Fogas itself.
