Sur fond de chasse à l'american dream, nous suivons Jende (sa femme Neni et son fils Liomi), jeune camerounais, vivant à New-York depuis trois ans et essaya..." Read more of this review »

“A man will reveal his true self, or so it seems, on the tennis court.”
Joyce Carol Oates, Black Water

“One can become so sentimental about a person's absence, but it's impossible to be consistently sentimental in his presence - when you're confronted with the quotidian selfishness and silence that, I'm given to understand, comprise most of a life. But we were just so new.”
Jennifer Dubois, A Partial History of Lost Causes

“But all that talk. All those confidences. He shuddered to think about it. At the time, though, he didn't know any better, and he was filled the gleeful lurching and teeth-chattering panic of early and undiagnosed love.”
Jennifer Dubois, A Partial History of Lost Causes

“I will admit it sometimes felt strange to me to make the confession to someone and later catch them laughing, or flirting, or eating a sandwich, instead of tearing at the injustice of it all or sitting quietly at the center of a grand and monstrous grief.

Jennifer Dubois, A Partial History of Lost Causes
