For 40 years, a woman has resisted the urge to seek out the man who shared her life before going missing one night in December 1976. At 80, she learns that he is affected with Alzheimer’s. Her promise holds no longer: she must get to the bottom of what happened before he loses all recollection of the past.

A tender novel told in an irresistible voice with mordant and subtle humour, Les écrivements (Ramblings) offers up a reflection on the vagaries of human memory, on the things we inadvertently forget and those we chose to dismiss from our minds. A feelgood novel in the spirit of And the Birds Rained Down and The One hundred year old man.
