Christelle | 1124 comments Hi guys,

Is it possible to add a new alternate cover edition for this book, ISBN 9782070385461?

The cover is now the one you can find on the publisher's website.

It has 253 pages:
- p.251: end of the story
- p.252-253: table of contents
- p. 254-256: Folio collection info

The publisher is Gallimard, the collection is Folio.

The description should be:

---

À Rivière au Sel, en plein cœur de la forêt, on veille un mort, un homme qui s'est installé dans le village quelques années auparavant et dont on ne sait pas grand-chose.
Est-il cubain ? colombien ? A-t-il déserté ? Pourquoi est-il revenu en Guadeloupe ? Les réponses ne sont pas claires.
Cependant peu importe la véritable identité de cet homme. Ce qui importe, c'est l'image que les individus gardent chacun de lui et les modifications essentielles qu'il a apportées dans leurs vies.
Dans le temps clos de cette seule nuit, au-delà de cette petite communauté, c'est toute la société guadeloupéenne d'aujourd'hui qui se dessine, avec ses conflits, ses contradictions et ses tensions.

---

Thank you in advance!

Christelle | 1124 comments Thank you!
Just wondering, should the publication date be 2018? Is it because it is an alternate cover edition? (I'm asking just to understand how it works on Goodreads.)

Renske | 10980 comments An Alternate cover edition should have the date that specific cover was published. But as that date is not always given and a lot of the request for ACE are for recent changes, so the date is then set to the current year (and month). But in some cases, such as this, the change was possibly longer ago. If you have a better date, we can add it.

Christelle | 1124 comments Oh ok, thank you for your explanation. No, I don't think I can't find the correct publication date for this ACE. Even on the publisher's website, it is mentioned the publication date of the book with this ISBN (the other cover publication date). I know that this cover exists at least since 2017. I can't be more precise.
