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.

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 *
