L’impureté

168 pages | Septembre 2018

The famed writer Alice Livingston has died, leaving behind readers saddened by her disappearance, an unpublished manuscript, a son who has run as far away from his father as possible and Antoine, a husband who never liked her work anyway. But Alice’s last novel will shatter his world, bring him to his knees and force him to face his past and the dark secrets that inhabit it. For sometimes, even fiction can weave a treacherous and vengeful trap for those who remain. Everybody, including the reader, will be struck by the dramatic ending of this twisted and poignant tale of betrayal by the author of The Orange Grove (Winner of the Bookseller Prize).
