talk with you
Amélie Me, I often dream of a house with a father in it… Wendy (In English) Me, my whole life has been sold since I was in prison… Katia Me, I'm going out, this time for sure. Go Ciao girls, Inch'Allah see you next… Amélie Shut up Katia. What do women in prison talk about? What do those who are waiting for their men outside say to each other? This novel in the form of dialogues originates from meetings with women walled in, in the prison of Caen, the prison of Bollé in Bamako (Mali), and the association Chemins de Traverses (suburb of Caen) where some say the ills they experience separated from their loved ones, who are also prisoners. We have rarely gone as far as Sophie Lucet in sublimating the word of the excluded. We witness, accomplices, the great universal theater of madness, guilt, self-mockery, and the desire for freedom. Sophie Lucet, essayist, writer, is a lecturer in theater studies at the University of Caen/Basse-Normandie. She is the author of Poussin de Haie (The Pocket Book).
