Ce qu'il faut de nuit

The novel tells the story of a father, a railroad worker in Lorraine, militant for the Socialist Party, who, as a widower, raises his two sons alone. Over several years, he sees them grow up and make choices that he does not always understand.
A sociological novel about family, values and their transmission.

A simple style, almost modest, but fair, which has greatly touched the students.

And they are not the only ones, given the success of the novel, which has already received many awards, including the Prix Fémina des Lycéens, the Grand Prix du Premier Roman, the Prix Stanislas 2020, the Feuille d'or des Medias 2020, the Prix du Barreau de Marseille, the Prix Georges Brassens 2020, the Prix des lecteurs des bibliothèques de la Ville de Paris...
