When she first conceived of La Vie Clandestine, Monica Sabolo intended to write an easy-to-read book about a notorious crime — the murder of Renault CEO Georges Besse, by Action Directe, a far left terrorist group active in the late 1970s and '80s. Easy, fast and painless, that’s how she envisioned this project, “as remote from her own story as…

Sébastien Japrisot –born Jean-Baptiste Rossi– loved to claim that Jesuits taught him how to write. “Style is a subject, a verb and a complement.
