PRIX RENAUDOT 2010 : Valentine Galtan, adolescente énigmatique et difficile, a disparu. La narratrice, Lucie, anti-héroïne trentenaire, détective privée sans conviction ni talent, engagée par la grand-mère de Valentine pour surveiller ses faits et gestes, l'a perdue sur un quai de métro parisien. Comment la retrouver ? Que faire des édifiantes photos de Valentine qui la montrent si expérimentée avec les garçons ? Aurait-elle rejoint à Barcelone cette mère qu'elle n'a jamais connue ? Le mieux pour Lucie serait de faire équipe avec la Hyène, une 'privée 'aux méthodes radicales, une femme puissante, au corps souple plein d'une violence qui s'exprime par saccades : moyennant finances et aussi par amusement, La Hyène accepte le marché. Voici les collègues mal appariées, l'une lesbienne volcanique, l'autre hétéro à basse fréquence qui traversent la France et l'Espagne jusqu'à Barcelone à la recherche de la petite fugueuse. ( )

Un peu trashy, un peu paresseux, mais au final bien sympathique ( )

Il n'y a pas si longtemps de ça, j'avais encore trente ans. Tout pouvait arriver. Il suffisait de faire les bons choix au bon moment.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

This is a fearlessly feminist roadtrip novel, packed with atmosphere and romance. Valentine, the troubled daughter of a well-off but dysfunctional Parisian family, vanishes on her way to school. Inexperienced private detective Lucie Toledo is hired to find the missing teenager, and enlists the help of a formidable agent with a past, known to her friends as the Hyena. Their quest, from Paris to Barcelona and back, uncovers a rich cast of characters whose paths have crossed Valentine's, leading to an alarming climax. Part political thriller, part road-movie, part romance, the latest novel by subversive writer and film-maker Virginie Despentes won the Prix Renaudot 2010 for the pitiless gaze it directs at society in the age of the internet.… (more)
