They were predicting storms for the end of the day but the sky stayed blue and the wind died down. I went to take a look in the kitchen - make sure things weren't getting clogged up in the bottom of the pot. Everything was just fine. I went out onto the porch armed with a cold beer and stayed there for a while, my face in the sun. It felt good. It had been a week now that I'd been spending my mornings in the sun, squinting like some happy idiot - a week now since I'd met Betty.'

BETTY BLUE remains a cult book and film nearly twenty years since its first outing. The extraordinary story of an erotic, doomed love affair has transfixed hundreds of thousands of readers around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A brilliant, painful account of a doomed love affair. While the storm clouds are gathering, the teller of the story belives the picnic is forever. * Carlo Gebler *
A story of love found and thwarted that also becomes a remarkable journey backward: from modernist narrative resignation and ennui into full-fledged emotional engagement, complicaiton, deepening of character and resolution... * Kirkus Reviews *
Djian is a major writer. A page of his prose reads like nothing else, except perhaps another page of his. His writing is the real thing. * Le Monde *
An atmosphere reminiscent of, by turns, Diva and Paris, Texas... Dijan's books soar above those of his contemporaries. * Paris Match *
