Reviews

"A musical and remarkably lively portrait."--Le Monde des livres

"[Kerninon's] talent illuminates every page."--Le Parisien

"A subtle, captivating, and insightful exploration of the mysterious interlacings between love, submission, and creation."--Miriam Bridenne, Albertine Bookstore

"A superb novel about self-sacrifice."--Michelle Carpy, ELLE

"Julia Kerninon offers up a hypersensitive novel, with chiseled sentences and a melancholy tone. I adored this uncommon love."--Fanny Morin, ELLE
