An unknown mother who looks like Liz Taylor, a dearly loved father who thinks he is Musset, a married lover who plays with a revolver, another who appears the day Beckett dies, friends in Germany, Corsica, and England, whose memory has sometimes almost faded, and an I, feminine or masculine, vulnerable or murderous, appear in turn, as one knocks down cards, in this new game by Anne Serre, placed under the sign of Lewis Carroll.
Anne Serre is the author of some fifteen novels, including Les débutants (rights sold: USA – New Direction; UK: Fugitives), Le narrateur (rights sold: USA – New Direction, shortlisted for the 2019 Best Translated Books Awards) and Voyage avec Vila-Matas (rights sold: Spain – L’Art de la Memoria).
