A crush and an unexpected slap. At the publication of the book by Antoine Dole, Je reviens de mourir (aka I Have Died Again, 2008), it is a tragedy! There are critics on all side : a book “too violent”, “unsuited to the public”, “without hope or desire for redemption”. Indeed, the book is harsh. The description of pain and despair makes the story difficult to read. However, this brutality does not leave us indifferent… You go through all the colors and read each sentence, shuddering.
Marion, a young woman, falls in love with a man who beats her, and uses her as a prostitute. She sometimes wants to leave, to escape from a life that destroys her, but it’s like she could’nt survive without despair and her addiction to this man…
Eva desperately kills all by feelings having sex with all men she finds…. Until she met David, the only one who could change something and help her to open her heart…
