Authors Biography
“Laetitia Colombani is a screenwriter, director and actress. She wrote and directed two feature films, A la folie … not at all and My stars and me. She also writes for the theater. The Braid is his first novel.

Born in 1976 in Bordeaux, Laetitia Colombani is a screenwriter and actress. She realized to the madness … not at all and my stars and me. His first novel, La Tresse, is being translated into sixteen languages ​​and printed at 16,000 copies.

Here is a first novel of a remarkable mastery, a fluency of impeccable writing and a height of irreproachable speech. The Braid is both an epic, the globalized hair trade and a hymn to the courage of women.

We quickly understand the purpose of these three intertwined paths. Whether triumphant or miserable, the condition of women is not enviable a priori in societies which, variously, assign it to a pre-established place. (…) One is struck by the capacity of resistance that it lends to its heroines, as if the destinies traced by the social conventions could all be transcended by the effect of the will. And to convince oneself of that, of this possible metamorphosis, the time of a novel, is rather pleasing.

Screenwriter and director, Laetitia Colombani clearly masters the art of storytelling and editing. She portrays characters of women with strong characters, interweaving lives in an optimistic perspective. But his writing is sensitive and restrained so that his novel escapes the suspicion of being a “feel-good book”.

Description : Smita, Giulia, Sarah: three lives, three continents, three women with nothing in common, but nevertheless bound by a rare expression of courage . . . like three strands in a braid. Through the story of one woman’s hair, three women’s destinies are drawn together. India. Smita is an untouchable, married to a ‘rat hunter’, her job to clean with her bare hands the village latrines, just like her mother before her. Her dream is to see her daughter escape this same fate, and learn to read. When this hope is shattered, she decides to run away with the child, despite her husband’s warnings, sacrificing what is most precious to her: her hair. Sicily. Giulia is a worker in her father’s wig workshop, the last of its kind in Palermo. She classifies, washes, bleaches, and dyes the hair provided by the city’s hairdressers. When her father is the victim of a serious accident, she quickly discovers the family company is bankrupt. Canada. Sarah is a reputed lawyer. As a twice-divorced mother of three children, she ploughs through cases at breakneck speed. Just as she is about to be promoted, she learns she has breast cancer. Her seemingly perfect existence begins to show its cracks . . . But this is only if one ignores the incredible lust for life that keeps her going. Laetitia Colombani’s The Braid is the powerfully moving story of three women’s courage in the face of adversity.
