The Mines of Sodom
Three Biblical Tales
Three disturbing biblical stories His masterpiece, The Secret Journal of Napoleon Bonaparte, earned him, in addition to public success, the homage of André Breton, who attributed to Lo Duca the invention of history-fiction. We find the provocative genius and the scintillating erudition of Lo Duca in these three biblical stories, The Mines of Sodom, Brother Jacques and The Judgment. All three fascinating, disturbing, lush with images and smells: we believe we are witnessing three films on the screen of the world. Three texts carved in stone with a sharp tongue. "The prodigious culture of a writer who multiplies the allusions, the games of words and meaning, the references to history, to the Scriptures, but also to current events. The sparing, spare writing, develops an ingenious labyrinth where the Humor and poetry nourish strong images and essential reflections". Jean-Philippe Mestre. Progress.
