With this poetic and dreamlike first novel, Anna de Sandre provides the contemporary mythology of a world ravaged by our ordinary evils.
In the heart of a valley rises Villebasse, an interlacing of centuries-old streets where shacks and buildings pile up. For a few years now, without anyone being concerned, a strange blue moon has been lighting up the sky. Those who come here rarely leave, restricting their lives to the city walls. Villebasse is their horizon and their curse. It is at the beginning of winter that Le Chien arrives in town. He prowls from park to alley, sharing in the lives of others, sometimes protector, sometimes vigilante.
