This Blue

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
2 Hrs. 33 Min.


Sophie Forrest writes horror stories because she sees faces in the walls; men with their heads in their laps materialize in front of her when she's trying to enjoy her cafe creme; her former lover is marrying someone else amid oyster brunches and tennis matches.

Born in France, Sophie returns to her birthplace on a quest to find not the place where she was a child but her childhood itself. Her poor French and the mistake of a cab driver results in her stepping into the Hotel Placide, an ancient house of blue walls and blue curtains and blue rugs, in which she encounters an aspiring nun, a trigger-happy little boy, and a quiet, enigmatic farmer.

This Blue is a dream-like story that unfolds with a comedy that goes with the uncertain adventure of travel.

Ploughshares, the literary magazine of Emerson College.
