Une Inde où leur jeune accompagnateur indien déclare ouvertement sa haine des États-Unis. Une Inde où n'ont pas cours l. a. légèreté et l. a. raison françaises, où l. a. chaleur exacerbe les sentiments, où le ciel avant l'orage est couleur indigo. Tout en enchaînant les événements selon une mécanique narrative précise et efficace, ce nouveau roman de Catherine Cusset nous fait découvrir une humanité complexe, tourmentée, captivante.
