Les ombres de Marge Finaly
Dans ce troisième roman, Thierry Dancourt confirme son penchant pour les femmes énigmatiques, les hommes peu enclins à songer à leur avenir, les failles secrètes. Plaçant sur le même plan sensible le décor et les personnages, il crée une partition d'une extrême subtilité, où chaque note compte.

Les Ombres de Marge Finaly
All rights available
Paris, on a winter morning. Pierre, the narrator, happens to bump into Marge, a young woman he was in love with 15 years earlier. What has become of her in the meantime? What has become of the group of friends she used to invite to her house by the banks of the Seine River? There they spent hours dreaming, dancing, flirting, driving a heavy Renault Prairie or the tiny Austin that had belonged to her father; discussing for hours on end around the swimming pool and smoking "Week-end" cigarettes, because life back then, had the carefreeness the lightness of an endless week-end. Thinking back on this period and looking up some of these past acquaintances, finally understands what brought them apart at the time.
In his third novel, Thierry Dancourt’s very particular talent reaches its peak. He confirms his attraction to enigmatic women, to men reluctant to think of their future and to hidden flaws. Putting the setting and the characters on the same level, he creates an extremely subtle score, where each note has its significance.
Thierry Dancourt lives and works in Paris. His first novel, Hôtel de Lausanne, published by La Table Ronde in 2008, was awarded Prix du Premier Roman and Prix Bertrand de Jouvenel de l’Académie française. Les Ombres de Marge Finaly is his third novel.
