"Hunger, it's me". Biography of hunger, of never satisfied desire, of a never-ending quest: Amélie Nothomb analyses all the aspects it can take, from ravishing to horror, with talent, pain, love, humour and lucidity, to tell this terrible paradox of existing. It results of that a feeling of a poweful vision, a fatal perception where absolute drives along derision. It is a dazzling confession in wich the subject of the book is the author herself and wich really proves that Amélie Nothomb is one of our greatest contemporary authors. From Hygiène de l'assassin, her first success in 1992, to Antechrista, Amélie Nothomb has always been very successful. Her novels are translated in more than 30 countrys in the wold.
