Roman de Jonathan Littell, editions Gallimard

The Good Book: An Old Story , Jonathan Littell

The pitch : Crowned Prix Sade 2018 (the equivalent of the Prix de Flore du cul littéraire created by Frédéric Beigbeder in 2001), Jonathan Littell shows an overflowing imagination in his collection of fantasized stories. As the story unfolds in an invented and dreamlike temporality and the narrator changes with each chapter, the same story is told seven times: a narrator comes out of a swimming pool, changes and starts running down a gray hallway. He discovers doors behind which human relationships are played out endlessly, which very (very) often revolve around sexuality . Thrills guaranteed!

Why are you going to climb the curtains? If you like complex narratives that question the human relationships that play out in sexuality, this book has been written for you. These often perverse stories revolve around the quest for unlimited desire and unfulfilled fantasy . The body is sometimes celebrated there, sometimes lowered. Something to satisfy everyone!
