France’s renowned nonfiction writer, Emmanuel Carrère, has a talent for recounting historical events and nonfiction prose. In V13, he captures the spectacle of the 10-month trial in the Palais de Justice, known as V13, or “vendredi 13,” a sort of metonymic euphemism for the series of mass shootings and suicide bombings throughout Paris that resulted in 137 deaths.

“We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” Thus begins Joan Didion’s White album. Stories have been essential to Minh Tran Huy since childhood. So much so that they form the backbone of her life, a life that keeps her busy, as a journalist during the day, novelist at night, and full-time mother and wife.
