Praise for In the Shadow of the Fire
"Le Corre is an aquafortist. From beginning to end of this dazzling novel, he deepens the shadows in his Paris of soot and night. Here and there, touches of color: the bloody red of the Communards' flag, the incandescence of a fire, the flame of a hurricane lamp. Glimmers of hope flicker and don't go out."--Macha Séry, Le Monde
"In a perfectly constructed historical frame, supported by breathless intrigue, Hervé Le Corre offers up a fascinating red and black novel. To be read passionately!"--Sébastien Thomas-Calleja, aVoir-aLire
"A true history lesson served by extremely precise writing, In the Shadow of the Fire is an astounding epic in which the reader, constantly confronted with suffering, misery, and violence, is taken above all with the strength of the solidarity and heroism of ordinary people, and the infinite hope of those who believe to the end in the causes they are fighting for."--Hélène Falek, L'Express
