A little quiz and then go!
The author who sent us her personal photos this week devoted her first novel to a little Breton boy who became… mogul in India in the 18th century! It was in 1982 and since then she has continued to string together successes. His favorite themes? The issues inherent in the condition of women and the Orient. Moreover, she was born in … Lorient, port of the former Compagnie des Indes, formerly spelled … L’Orient! Could this explain it? One last clue: she has just been distinguished by the Interallié Prize jury for her latest heartbreaking novel, dedicated to her murdered older sister. The beginning of a semblance of an idea?
The bookseller recommends the latest Sandrine Collette …
Isabelle Léger, at the head of the bookstore, The words found, in Vitry-sur-Seine, let herself be carried away by These thunderstorms a novel edited by Jean-Claude Lattès. A great specialist in the noir novel, Sandrine Collette today tackles domestic violence and more precisely “after” when women believe they have – finally – freed themselves from their predator. “A particular style of writing that catches your guts, takes you on board right away and raises your anxiety.” We will have warned you!
Bookstagramers vote for “The Unknown of the Post”!
“A postwoman was murdered and a whole village falls into dread (…) and the search for the culprit” sums up @librairiepleinelune. This dark news item would probably not have made the headlines of the media if its main suspect were none other than Gérald Thomassin, a young actor crowned, in 1991, with the César for best male hope for The little criminal. A new story of “non-fiction narrative” for Florence Aubenas, journalist specializing in the genre published by L’Olivier editions. A work that is polar, ultra documented, written with meticulousness that left @librairiesaintpierre “blown away by the quill and this breathless tale.”
