About This Item

London: John Murray, 1955. A first edition, first printing published by John Murray in 1955. A very good book without inscriptions in a good unclipped wrapper with a chip to the rear panel and some edge chipping. Some spotting to the page edge. "Bonjour Tristesse" is a novel written by French author Françoise Sagan. It was first published in 1954 when Sagan was only 18 years old, and it gained immediate acclaim for its portrayal of youth, love, and existentialism. The title "Bonjour Tristesse" translates to "Hello Sadness" in English.


Bonjour Tristesse (in English, Hello Sadness) is a novel by Françoise Sagan. Published in 1954, when the author was only eighteen, it caused an overnight sensation. The title is derived from a poem by Paul Éluard, "À peine défigurée," which begins with the lines "Adieu tristesse/ Bonjour tristesse... " The 1958 film Bonjour Tristesse featured Geoffrey Horne, Deborah Kerr, Jean Seberg and David Niven as the lead actors. The music was composed by Georges Auric.
