“Un roman libératoire, et même cathartique. Quarante ans après son premier livre, «Retable la rêverie», la discrète Chantal Chawaf, dont l’oeuvre féministe, charnelle et incantatoire s’est construite à l’écart des médias, sort de son registre habituel pour dénoncer, avec rage, les dérives de l’édition, l’endogamie de la presse.”

Jerôme Garcin. L’Obs

“How does combining fact and fictional material allow practitioners (for example, Angot, Robin, Geneviève Brisac, Chantal Chawaf, Danielle Sallenave, Hélène Duffau, to name a few) to respond to rape, incest, violence, illness, and death? The trope of the wound has been fertile here, not least for the tension it embodies between rending and repair.”
