Afterword by Daniel Rousseau “Céline is deprived of food, beaten for years, locked up. She fears every weekend for her life, works, still works, to shine and play the prodigious pianists while keeping the horror of her family life secret and, around her, a deafening silence. How to suspect the horror of servitude under the trappings of excellence? The absolute demand for perfection which becomes justification for all excesses and all abuses and which mystifies the entourage all the more easily since this slave is not assigned to a task of slut but to an artistic production reserved for elites? Daniel Rousseau. “It's an extraordinary journey, which she tells to lift the taboo of abused childhood. » Le Monde, June 2012.
