L'Anomalie should be read in one sitting, like a wonderful adventure novel where the reader holds their breath between tears and laughter. Are we truly unique? Or are we just doubles of ourselves? Characters in search of existence? If we were offered a second life or a second chance, would we have enough imagination, resources, and generosity to share our life…

In 1995, when promoting Total Khéops(Europa Books) Jean-Claude Izzo said: "Marseille is the only city on earth where you can show up for the very first time, penniless and with just a suitcase and yet claim: I am home". 25 years later, Hadrien Bels's debut novel, Cinq dans tes yeux, comes as a scathing refutation of this remark.

Men might die younger, and yet, they do live longer” Chloe Deleaume could have made this quote by Camille Laurens her own (Who You Think I Am, Other Press). This flagrant injustice fuels the novel with a combative energy, sustained by an 80s rock/pop soundtrack. But Le Coeur synthétique refuses to give into easy melancolia.
