Underground Time, by Delphine de Vigan.

Translated from the French and set in Paris, this novel takes place on 20 May, the exact date a soothsaying fortune-teller told Mathilde there would come a (much-needed) change in her life.  Mathilde feels herself disintegrating.  Her boss has turned on her and has been making her job and her life unendurable for months and months.  Physician Thibault is feeling similarly adrift & ready for a change in his life on the selfsame 20 May.
