Publisher's Summary

Sophie Forrest writes horror stories because she sees faces in the walls; men with their heads in their laps materialize in front of her when she's trying to enjoy her cafe creme; her former lover is marrying someone else amid oyster brunches and tennis matches.

Born in France, Sophie returns to her birthplace on a quest to find not the place where she was a child but her childhood itself. Her poor French and the mistake of a cab driver results in her stepping into the Hotel Placide, an ancient house of blue walls and blue curtains and blue rugs, in which she encounters an aspiring nun, a trigger-happy little boy, and a quiet, enigmatic farmer.

This Blue is a dream-like story that unfolds with a comedy that goes with the uncertain adventure of travel.

Ploughshares, the literary magazine of Emerson College.

    "lucious read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of This Blue to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version, but the depth of prose was such a joy. Was hooked by the story quickly.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Bates’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No comparison with other performance. Loved the voice, pace and general presentation by the narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me want to immediately book a flight to France.
