Le Coeur synthétique by Chloé Deleaume
“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; and Deleaume’s heroines try to figure out another way to age, to have a long life that remains full of pleasure, seduction, and fun. Le Coeur synthétique is a joyful celebration of life after 45, an ode to women and the power of friendship, and an invitation to rebel against patriarchal order.
