Marie and the Misfits

by Sébastien Betbeder


An alternative love triangle swinging between fiction and literature.

Marie is an alluring young woman who lacks self confidence. When she leaves Antoine – a melancholic writer, she meets with Simeon, a jobless journalist. Yet she prefers to let fate decide for her future.
Antoine and Simeon become obsessed by an elusive Marie.

This is a story of desperate souls between Paris and an island in Brittany.
It’s also a story about a story being written.
