The author is French, but the book takes place in Argentina in the 1980s, multiple characters greatly affected by the murderous dictator in power a few years before. A patient tries to determine the true story about the death of the wife of her psychoanalyst, currently in prison after being accused of the crime. It provides things from various perspectives, including the voice of patients. This style attracts me given my overall way of looking at things. Overall, liked it, but at times it goes into a basic stream of consciousness style that is a bit much.
