hussard 150x250

Roman picaresque, Le hussard sur le toit est avant tout une réflexion sur l’humanité.  

Nous sommes aux alentours de 1830, où à travers tout le Midi, le choléra frappe et se propage alors que grondent les menées révolutionnaires des carbonari piémontais. Angelo Pardi, jeune colonel de hussards exilé en France, est chargé d'une mission mystérieuse: retrouver Giuseppe qui vit à Manosque. Mais le choléra sévit: les routes sont barrées, les villes barricadées, on met les voyageurs en quarantaine. Et voilà que l’on soupçonne Angelo d'avoir empoisonné les fontaines ! Seul refuge découvert par hasard, les toits de Manosque…

You will read between 50 and 60 pages a week and meet on Wednesday nights to share your thoughts. A solid knowledge of spoken French comes in handy for passionate discussions! 
Please note that as we are starting in October, later than usual, the first two classes will require that you have read more than for the remaining classes. Please start reading as soon as your registration has been confirmed to you and your book has arrived.
