Ivan and Ivana are twins with a bond so strong they become afraid of their feelings.
As young adults in Paris, Ivana joins the police while Ivan walks the path of radicalisation. Unable to live with or without each other, they become perpetrator and victim in a wave of violent attacks.
With her most impressive novel to date, this master storyteller offers an impressive picture of a colourful yet turbulent 21st century.
