Delphine, Nina, Abie and his charming British accent, Vero, and Nini Globule, Charlotte, Gaby, Marco, Maxime Jean-Bath …  a group of thirty-somethings living in Paris.  In the living room transformed into a hair salon or in the café on the banks of the Canal Saint Martin, the friends meet and chat.

From parenting to the boys discussing things and the girls chatting about their problems, looking for a coffee table (in a skip…a road sign works it seems), work, sex, shopping and hopping about with your trousers around the ankles –see? It’s not just the English!  It’s all here. Tender, funny and bitter-sweet.

And the art by Peyraud is very unusual and stylish –I’ve not seen comic art like this before now but it works and the colour work is just superb.

And I love the extra pages at the back showing thumbnails of the pages and layouts.

This book collects together the five volumes published between 2001-2005
