La famille Tenenbaum The royal Tenenbaums ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Résumé: Comédie de moeurs. Royal et Etheline Tenenbaum pouvaient s'enorgueillir d'avoir trois enfants surdoués: Chas, un génie de la finance, Richie, un champion de tennis, et Margot, une brillante dramaturge. Mais leur séparation et le comportement insensible de l'excentrique Royal ont transformé les trois jeunes Tenenbaum en véritables névrosés, malgré tous les efforts de leur mère pour les protéger. Presque deux décennies après avoir quitté les siens, le père indigne apprend qu'Etheline est courtisée par son comptable Henry Sherman. Cette nouvelle coïncide avec la faillite de Royal qui se retrouve dans la rue. Il prétend alors être à l'article de la mort pour réintégrer le foyer familial et tenter de se réconcilier avec son épouse et ses trois enfants dysfonctionnels. [(c) OCS] [SDM]
