Literary synopsis In *Eau Sauvage*, Mrejen casts a wry eye on generational differences, retracing the father-daughter relationship previously depicted in *Mon Grand-Père*. This time it is through a false dialogue, for we only hear the voice of the father — complaining, misapprehending, attempting to understand; out-of-touch with his progenies. Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice All her three novels, which were published in 2005 under one title, *Trois Quartiers*, are characterized as much by their terseness and Parisian setting as by their distinct literary style — short blocks of text, chronologically shuffled and fragmented in such a way that they could act as written mini-storyboards for one of Mrejen’s films.
