When his fireworks factory job ends explosively and his wife returns to work, Jose is surprised to realise he has a talent for keeping house: childcare, tidying, cleaning, cooking, gardening, he excels at it all.
On Thursdays, he hangs out and drinks good wine with his jazz-loving neighbour.
But when Jose's new talents take a sudden and gruesome turn, life, death, resurrection, and domesticity unexpectedly converge.
In one single, hypnotic paragraph, Petite Fleur harnesses the unpredictability of Aira and the mysticism of Tolstoy in a discordant riff on suburban life.
