Sign up for Newsletter. And Billi begins to grow up. In fact, her mother is somehow central, even when Bedford is in London. Bedford is happy to imply that this is better than anything else that might have been on offer. Anything else? Attitudes to sex and marriage, for a start. When one of the sisters she relies on in London tells her of her long-term affair with a High Court Judge and asks her to sort out a French hotel for them, well, no problem.
I just wish I could like her more.
Like her more, I mean. In these chapters we get a particular stratum of French society as represented by the Derailment brothers, the weird couple who have wafted in and out of the town from time to time. It seems to be mostly about playing , of one sort or another. There are actual games, like a properly organised tennis tournament — how seriously these leisured classes take their sports — and, well, fun: dressing up, the response of Sybille and her stepfather to the completion of the shell of the new house in the absense of Maman, with a coup de theatre involving pirate costumes; time at the beach; day trips.
Our girl has had exquisite sexual feelings before, and feels she ought to go through this particular rite of passage. And so on.
