More information (in French)

An author has dedicated his first novel to his son, although he will never read it himself. Through this fictional novel, the teacher from Geneva sought to understand what his autistic son could feel, and how he could flourish. His son is ultimately the one who gives him the strength to write, to try to understand, to learn to live side by side, without expecting anything in return. A fiction, a reality.
