♦Description : “I am nine years old. One Sunday in May, I come home alone from the school party, a gentleman follows me. A white day.
Year after year, move on at night.
When we do not have the words, we shut up, we shut ourselves up, we go out, so the words, I looked for them. Long time. And from words to words, I began to write. I left the Sunday of May and I crossed my past, I confronted the facts, and sentence after sentence, I exhausted the violence by naming, delimiting, giving to see and understand.
Page after page, I came back to life. ”
When her parents find her in tears, mute, Adelaide does not know what happened to her. They take him to the police station. She grows up without showing anything, teenager then playful young woman. Years of suffering, loneliness, fighting.
Twenty years later, she receives a call from the miners’ brigade. An investigator reopened the so-called electrician case, and the DNA designates a burglar well known to the police. It is attributed 72 minor victims from 1983 to 2003, plus hundreds of little girls who could not file a complaint.
In the spring of 2016, at the Palais de Justice in Paris, alongside 18 other women, Adelaide faces the serial rapist who destroyed her life.
With a distance, a maturity and a sharpness of writing striking, Adelaide Bon traces a terrifying course, and yet too common. A crucial reading.
Adelaide Bon was born in 1981, The little girl on the ice floe is her first book.”
