Lionel Shriver, Françoise Cartano avec Il faut qu'on parle de Kevin
À la veille de ses seize ans, Kevin Khatchadourian exécute neuf personnes dans son lycée. A travers des lettres au père dont elle est séparée, sa mère retrace l’itinéraire meurtrier de leur fils. Un roman coup-de-poing, violent, complexe, qui s’attaque aux pires des tabous.
The gripping international bestseller about motherhood gone awry
Eva never really wanted to be a mother - and certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker, and a much-adored teacher who tried to befriend him, all two days before his sixteenth birthday. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood, and Kevin's horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her estranged husband, Franklyn. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son may be responsible for driving him so nihilistically off the rails.
