Walk of the Flamingo
La meilleur façon de marcher c'est celle du flamant rose
“With great ease and elegance, Diane Ducret alternates from gripping writing to pure comedy.”— LIRE
Enaid is standing on a street in Gdansk when her telephone rings and her boyfriend dumps her. She can’t help finding his pathetic, clichéd explanations funny, but then her phone rings again. This time it’s a call from a hospital in Paris and Enaid hears the weak voice of a stranger telling her that they’re about to die.
The woman on the other end of the phone is none other than Enaid’s mother – who abandoned Enaid when she was a little girl. During her upbringing, awkward silences always surrounded her mother – there were rumors that she was beautiful, that she was crazy, that she was a stripper.
Enaid has been searching to fill the gaping whole that her mother’s absence created inside her ever since she could remember. But now that she has a chance to be reunited with her, she has no idea what to do.
