Synopses & Reviews
Veronique, an insouciant young Parisian, has an argument with her boyfriend, a self-consciously cerebral experimental musician, after he premieres the latest opus from his band, The Sofia Experimental Bread Octet, in his shabby living room. Pissed-off, exhausted by his claims of genius, and slightly tipsy, Veronique snatches the keys to her white Fiat Uno, her best friend Estelle, and takes off into the very French night. What ensues includes, but by no means is limited to, Sex, Death, hostile road driving, soft rock, homing pigeons, and international incidents of the most sinister class. Featuring a pair of heroines as ripe and camera-ready as Contemporary America could hope for, The Little White Car is a buddy-novel that would make Tarantino weep with gratitude. It will also be a must-read for foreign car mechanics everywhere.
After an argument with her artistically elitist boyfriend, a young Parisian woman and her best friend hop into her white Fiat Uno and take off on a wild road trip.
