Je suis professeur de littérature francophone à l'université de Veracruz, et celui-ci est un livre qui s'adapte à mes propos pédagogiques et littéraires. C'est un parcours par l'Amérique du nord et par l'histoire. Si vous aimez les romans contemporains bien écrits, je vous le recomande. Génial, structure, personnages, intrigue, narration, parallélisme entre présent et passé.
