François and Sylvie are a couple. A couple with children, a girl and a boy. François and Sylvie live together since about fifteen years. They both work as film makers. They love each other and their love for each other is difficult, but probably they will always have difficulties to love each other… How to escape a difficult love? This is, doubtlessly, the subject of the new novel by Christine Angot, Les désaxés. We are Les désaxés, and this novel has got a terribly universal character : as long as we do not know how to live, we do not know how to love.
Christine Angot was born in 1959. She is the author of a dozen books (novels, short stories, theatre plays), for ex. Sujet Angot (1998), L’inceste (1999), Quitter la ville (2000) and Pourquoi le Brésil ? (2002).
