The Mustache by Emmanuel Carrère

Marc tries to make the best of his situation, but grows more paranoid and confused when even his co-workers don’t acknowledge that he has shaven his moustache. Marc hangs up on him. Crippled by his writer’s block, Paul enters into a new, exciting relationship with risk-taking Billy and super-sexy Juliette. Soon enough he’s rid himself of that same lip moustacche, and no one seems to notice.
