108 pages, paperback book.
Isabelle Nicou is a major French literary writer, dealing in explicit themes and appearing in English translation for the very first time.
"The asphalt was still swaying to the sound of the neume, reverberating off the metal bodies of cars, when, lying on the sidewalk on boulevard de Sébastopol, teeth grinding, I distinctly heard a voice breathe behind me: 'Elizabeth! Elizabeth! Is this how the child leaped in your womb?'"
A claustrophobic novel of poisonous desire.
