UN FAUX PAS DANS LA VIE D'EMMA PICARD

by Belezi, Mathieu

Third novel in a trilogy about the French colonization of Algeria.

The author relates the tragedy of Emma Picard, an imagined young emancipated widow, who left for Algeria in the late 1860s with her four sons after receiving a plot of land from the French government.

She first thought of a Christmas miracle but then went through a real nightmare dedicating her life to this hard land, getting the better of one disaster after another until the end.

Based on facts, the story is imagined.

Comments

Ce texte, qui clôt une trilogie romanesque sur l'aventure coloniale française, aurait pu aussi bien l'ouvrir. Il en est, en tout cas, par ses qualités formelles, une forme de couronnement.

Review: Telerama
