Generational rebellion on all levels!

Sixtine, 40 years old, married, with two children and a preppy lifestyle, is on the verge of a nervous breakdown when she is forced to take in her parents. Their relationship has been limited to the bare essentials since she became an adult, and for good reason: she is the daughter of two former punk stars. The house is on the verge of exploding, with the crazy grandparents versus the well-adjusted (and even a bit uptight) daughter in her forties. But for Sixtine’s two children, this cohabitation comes from heaven...

The author

After the success of Sales gosses, published in 2019, Les imbéciles heureux is Charlye Ménétrier McGrath’s second novel.

Strong points

Charlye Ménétrier McGrath explores in this new novel the genre of family comedy, on a very current theme: the clash between generations.

The dialogues are on the mark, the situations are funny and the misunderstandings are delightful: an excellent read!

A first novel, Les sales gosses, which was a huge success (20,000 copies sold in large format and in paperback).

An author who had a lot of success in the fairs with her only first novel to defend in large format. Objective: to develop her notoriety.
