Lost in a succession of rainy days and sleepless nights, the young teacher falls under the spell of one of the town's residents, Yvonne, a woman of transcendent beauty. "Everything about her screamed desire, something that people say enough that it's almost meaningless, but it was a quality that she gave of generously to everyone, to herself, to nothing, when she was alone and had forgotten herself, setting something in motion while settling a fingertip to the counter, turning her head slightly, gold earrings brushing her cheek while she watched you or watched nothing at all; this desire was open, like a wound; and she knew it, wore it with valor, with passion. But what are words?" In Michon's hands, words are marvels."--Cover

"In Small Lives, Pierre Michon paints portraits of eight individuals whose stories span two centuries in his native region of La Creuse. In the process of exploring their lives, he explores the act of writing and his emotional connection to both. The quest to trace and recall these interconnected lives seared into his memory ultimately becomes a quest to grasp his own humanity and discover his own voice."--book jacket

Pierre Michon a peu publie et tard. Il n'a rien a signaler sur sa vie uniquement sauvee par l'ecriture. Il dit se nourir de ses lectures et de ses observations pendant les periodes d'ecritures, comme un "filtre humain".

The novel A Start in Life is part of the Scenes of Private Life section of Honore de Balzac's masterpiece of nineteenth-century realism, The Human Comedy. In much of Balzac's work, the aristocracy is portrayed as vain, duplicitous, and greedy. But in this novel, it is members of the working class who are mercilessly skewered when what starts out as a harmless prank rapidly snowballs into a comedy of errors with profound consequences
