iciHaiti - Prix Goncourt : Last straight line for the Haitian writer Makenzy Orcel
Tuesday, October 25, 2022 in Beirut (Lebanon) the Goncourt jurors unveiled as part of the Beirut Book Festival the 3rd selection of the last 4 novels in the running for the most prestigious and coveted French Literary Prize.

The Haitian novelist and poet Makenzy Orcel appears in this 3rd selection for his novel "Une Somme humaine" at Éditions Rivages, 2022.

The Prize will be announced by the Académiciens Concourst, at Drouant, on Thursday November 3, 2022,

"Une Somme humaine" by Makenzy Orcel, Summary:
"The heroine's voice comes to us from beyond the grave. Both anonymous and embodied, it is the voice of one woman and of all women. She tells us in notebooks stolen from time and death a stolen childhood, a torn adolescence, a shattered life and destiny.

Having grown up in a provincial village where rumour and gossip reign, neglected by her parents, especially by her mother who prefers the roses in her garden, she hardly finds any comfort from her grandmother no more lovely. She escapes to Paris in hopes of leading a life free from the ghosts of the past. There she studied literature at the Sorbonne, found love with a man who had fled the war in Mali, experienced the working world, before finally undergoing the test of abandonment and sinking into poverty. irreversible wandering.

By giving us the autobiography of a dead woman in dazzling language, Makenzy Orcel takes us, through this "Somme humaine", the second part of a trilogy initiated by "L'Ombre animal", into the poetic belly of the world."
