Lola Lafon

Recommended by

Christianne Beasley
Un nouveau roman de Lola Lafon, auteur de La Petite communiste qui ne souriait jamais, qui fait revivre l'histoire énigmatique de Patricia Hearst à travers la perspective de trois femmes. Ces femmes, une Américaine et deux Françaises, cherchent à comprendre les enjeux d'un événement qui a bouleversé les Etats-Unis. Une première arrivée de la rentrée littéraire de cette année et un titre à ne pas manquer. (Petit clin d’œil : cet auteur étaient en résidence à mon alma mater, Smith College, et a trouvé son inspiration pour ce livre grâce à son séjour à Northampton !)
