2 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction in translation

A charming and thought-provoking novel about a woman who wouldn't age.

The new book by internationally bestselling author Gregoire Delacourt.

What happened to Betty is every woman's dream.
Isn't it?

There are those who never grow old because they are taken too soon.
There are those who grow old without worries, enjoying everything life has to offer.
There are those who desperately try to slow down the ticking clock.

And then there's Betty. Betty, who mysteriously stops growing old on her thirtieth birthday - the same age as her mother when she died.

The years leave no trace on Betty's face, but as everyone around her is transformed by the relentless march of time, her once golden life begins to come apart.
Because an ageless face is a face without history, without passions, without memories.
A blank canvas others will slowly, inexorably forget...
