A jeu d'esprit, which has become a best-seller in France: the imaginary history of a left-wing government under Mitterrand. The anonymous author, taking the name of a famous French chronicler, presents a simple scenario - growing political and economic turmoil, departure of the Communists from the government, Giscard's dissolution of the National Assembly, and Mitterrand's resignation. The book provides details of amusing plausibility.
