In the narrators opinion, coversation is a specialty that is most eminently French, an art that should be nurtured and practiced, and can help repair Frances reputation.

Not to mention being a good conversationalist is extremely useful for seducing women, which is how the narrator managed to attract Lucienne, his superbly lumpish wife who died two months before giving this lecture. One of the oddest characters in contemporary fiction, the lecturer in this novel cant help but digress about his sad life in the midst of his speech, giving the reader a view of a self-centered man trying to turn one of his greatest faults into a virtue to be forced on everyone else. By turns ironic, hilarious, pathetic, and mortifying, Salvayres The Lecture is an exuberant example of the exciting fiction being written in France.
