Summary:"Lina was never really there. Everything was going on in his eyes. I knew the nuances, the reflections, the defeats. A shadow passed in his eyes, a hard shadow that faded his face. She was there but she was far away. I did not understand these mood swings, these swings of love." On Sunday in December, a woman gives her three sons the secret that suffocates her. By revealing an unsuspected suffering, this mother, denied by her family since adolescence, reveals herself in all her humanity and her obstinacy to live free, although never hurt. Some thirty years after Rochelle, Éric Fottorino brings the missing piece of his quest for identity. Through the solar and painful portrait of an unknown mother, the author of Korsakovand of the man who loved me very softly here gives the most personal of his novels.--Gallimard.
