How to Behave in a Crowd

$26.00

For Isidore Mazal, life is complicated. Born into a family of geniuses, he is the youngest of his five siblings: Bernice, Aurore and Leonard all are working on their doctorate, while Jeremie is at work on his master’s in physics and music. Simone, who is almost two years older, plans to be just as accomplished, although no one knows at what.

This is a cautionary tale about what it takes to fit in and how we become like our families, whether we wish it or not. Isidore isn’t fond of reading, like the rest of his family, who spend all their time doing just that. Unlike his familly, Isidore neither has skipped a grade nor cracked a book for the thrill of it. In fact, he regularly runs away from home, although no one really notices. No one really pays attention to him while Isidore is observing and asking questions that no one really has the answers to. Adulthood puzzles him, as well as the way his family deals with emotion especially after their father’s death.

How to Behave in a Crowd asks important questions of how we behave within our family, and explores the cost of pleasing others, pleasing ourselves and losing ourselves in that unit. The search of finding ourselves often is different than what our family thinks it should be, and through the characters’ journey they realize they still have each other.
