Parfum de cèdre, parfum de Rose

Après dix ans de silence, Ann-Marie MacDonald boucle un triptyque avec «L’air adulte»

Elle y aura mis quatre ans d’écriture, après une dizaine d’années de silence depuis son dernier roman, Le vol du corbeau, publié dans la foulée du succès international d’Un parfum de cèdre, traduit en 19 langues. Son troisième livre était fort attendu. Avec L’air adulte, Ann-Marie MacDonald boucle un triptyque aux personnages intenses, voire plus vrais que vrais. Et un trip typique aux sources de l’être. » Le Devoir
