Underground Time

by Delphine de Vigan

Beautifully written, this moving and unsettling story introduces us to Mathilde, a woman on the edge of breaking point who is being brutally bullied, emotionally and mentally, by her boss. She and Thibault, the other main character, are trapped in the unchanging routine of their lives. Is there a way for them to escape?


She's been making the same journey for eight years, the same steps every day, the same turnstiles, the same underground passages, the same glances at clocks; each day her hand reaches out in the same place to hold or push the same doors, touches the same rails.
Exactly the same.
