“Chantal Chawaf écrit la vie. Les mots qu’elle donne à lire nous réconcilient avec notre chair. Ils l’étoffent, la développent, la font s’étendre et communiquer avec toute substance essentielle: la vie, l’eau, le lait, la lumière, la forêt, les étoiles et puis l’air… Mais dans ce livre, les mots se saisissent aussi de la mort. Ils disent la guerre, ils deviennent angoisse, nausée, maladie.”
Michèle Montrelay
“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.”
