    PDF Les jours vivants PDF/EPUB Ý Les jours Epub / î pnoy.me î jours pdf, vivants pdf, Les jours book, Les jours vivants Kindle35 5 stars the beginning chapters were a solid 5 stars for me and it is a very clever complex provocative novel however at times I think Devi's writing goes beyond pushing the boundaries and becomes gratuitous hence it has dropped to 35 stars Nevertheless like Eve Out of Her Ruins the Biblical metaphor and symbolism is incredibly cleverly handled and rewarding as always to comb through and at moments the writing is incredibly beautiful At others it is repulsiveThis is a very tricky and complex novel to review as it deals with some very difficult themes paedophilia for example and can't really be done well here However I will link my longer discursive review when it comes out in the Oxford Review of Books as that will do better justice Get me I know

She is from Mauritius in Africa but of Indian descent and writes in French This book takes place in London Don't get sucked into the latest book controversy and instead read thisThis is a gritty hard to read challenging book We are introduced to Mary an aging white woman with some dementia and to Cub a black child who has already lived beyond his years And we get their interior lives corroded by time for Mary and not fully formed for Cub The way
