Hello Sadness / Do you like Brahms...

The novel "Hello Sadness" received the Critics' Award in 1954. The title is derived from a poem by Paul Éluard, À peine défigurée. An English-language film adaptation was released in 1958, directed by Otto Preminger.

"Hello Sadness" tells about the 17-year-old Cécile who spends her summer in a villa on the French Riviera with her father Raymond and his current mistress, the young, superficial, fashionable Elsa, who gets on well with Cécile. The three of them are having fun, they don't need anyone, they are happy. All this until Anne's arrival. Anne is different from the women of Raymond's circle, she values culture, good manners and high morals. An insidious battle begins between the three women, Anne takes the upper hand, Cécile's intrigues tip the scales in Elsa's favor, the tension grows, and after the denouement comes the turn of sadness.

"Do you like Brahms…" was first published in 1959. It was published in English in 1960, and was made into a film under the title Goodbye Again in 1961 starring Ingrid Bergman and Anthony Perkins.

Thirty-nine years old, Paule is a divorced interior designer. Roger, her lover, who is busy with important business, makes distant visits to her, which she awaits with a certain indolence. She is committed to this relationship, but also wishes to preserve her independence and freedom. At a turning point in her life, and ultimately dissatisfied, she meets Simon, the son of Mrs. Van Der Besh, a wealthy American customer. At 25 years of age, he is handsome, nonchalant, childish. He falls in love with Paule...
