Reviews

"Undoubtedly, Hervelino is one of the most beautiful books ever written on friendship, because there is no attempt to explain it. He states it in its evidence and elegantly shares it with us, the time of a book, as if it were there forever."
--Christine Marcandier, Diacritik

"The tragic here is signified with heart-wrenching simplicity."
--L'Humanité

"Mathieu Lindon wields the deep art of lightness. Words like blades shearing snowflakes. It is difficult to detach scenes and sentences from each other, as everything comes from an intimate atmosphere. One enters it little by little and finds one's place there. [...] There is his customary humor, we laugh, but the light comes from elsewhere. Hervelino is the story of a double survival: how we survive those we love and how those we love survive us."
--Le Point
