Summary of "The accursed writer (L'Écrivain maudit)" :
"Michael Karevic is a writer indeed, but an accursed writer, in the great literary tradition, à la John Keats. While the media's pet novelists contest Goncourt, Renaudot or Femina prizes, Michael Karevic struggles in the underground.
Driving his car in the middle of the countryside, looking for a shortcut that he'll never find, Karevic is going to meet some very different characters, notably Matilda, a young poetry loving brunette, and Gabriel, a solitary stroller."
Behind its story, The accursed writer conceals a criticism of thrillers, noir fictions, the decline of poetry in France, just like an ode to nature.
