"Beautiful, hard truths in a pearl of a story"
Like an Edith Wharton novel writ-tiny, Our Bed, Our Life carries us into the privacy of the bedroom to witness a young couple's disagreement. At issue is whether or not it's safe - now that they live together - to leave their front door unlocked at night. Is the woman paranoid or the man cavalier, and will they survive their first argument?
"Love the tension and surprise!"
Paris. 1968. A young woman has an affair. The one-night stand may be a failure, but the buttery croissant she eats on a snowy morning-after is not. Even after she marries and has children, time won't stop polishing that simple memory, until it glows in unexpected ways.
