A novel of its time, Elise ou la vraie vie encapsulates the socio-economic times of the early sixties when the "trente glorieuses" years of expansion were in full swing, car factories were at the heart of the workers' movement and racial tension was at its height as the Algerian war rumbled on.

Setting a love story between a French woman and an Algerian man in that context was a brave move and the drama flows easily from the clash of cultures.   Although rather long for reluctant readers, the novel is a relatively easy ready written in a very matter of fact style.  This book will benefit students with an interest in history and sociology.
