Summary "Cette année, ma mère a fait un infarctus et mon père est tombé dans un hall d'hôtel. J'ai commencé à devenir un habitué des hôpitaux parisiens. En revenant de la clinique, Romy est entrée dans la cuisine avec un sourcil plus haut que l'autre. - Papa, si je comprends bien, tout le monde meurt ? Il va y avoir grand-père et grand-mère, puis ce sera maman, toi, moi, les animaux, les arbres et les fleurs ? Romy me regardait fixement comme si j'étais Dieu. Elle ajouta alors une phrase très aimable : - Papa, je n'ai pas envie que tu meures... - T'inquiète pas chérie, lui ai-je répondu, à partir de maintenant, plus personne ne meurt. Il ne me restait plus qu'à tenir cette promesse inconsidérée" -- cover.
"This year my mother had a heart attack and my father fell in a hotel lobby. I started to become a regular at Parisian hospitals. Returning from the clinic, Romy entered the kitchen with one eyebrow higher than the other. - Dad, if I understand correctly, everyone dies? There will be grandfather and grandmother, then it will be mom, you, me, the animals, the trees and the flowers? Romy was staring at me like I was God. Then she added a very nice sentence: - Dad, I don't want you to die ... - Don't worry honey, I replied, from now on, no one dies anymore. I just had to keep this thoughtless promise." ? Translation of the synopsis on the cover.
