'Famille, je vous ai (encore et toujours a l'esprit?), je vous aime un peu, beaucoup, ou je vous hais enormement?' What are households like in modern France? And what starts off to emerge after we think about them from the viewpoint of contemporary theoretical views: (faulty) unity, (fake) coherence, (carefully deliberate or subversive) deconstruction, loss (of love, self assurance or credibility), or, even (utter) chaos and (alarming) confusion? Which media revamp outdated stereotypes, generate substitute reinterpretations, and indicate extra ambiguous solutions? What pictures, scenes or frames stand out in modern representations of the relatives? Uneasy contradictions and ambiguities emerge during this bilingual selection of methods and style reports. The family members plot turns out to thicken as kin ties seem to loosen. Has 'the relatives' been misplaced from sight, or is it being reinvented in our collective imaginary? This e-book proposes a brand new sequence of views and questions about an previous and 'familiar' subject, exploring the country and standing of the kin in modern literature, tradition, serious and psychoanalytic idea and sociology
