Victoria

Historical auto fiction/memoir

In April 1994, the plane of the President of Rwanda was shot down over Kigali. His murder sparked a mass extermination of the Tutsi population and any Hutu who supported them which lasted 100 days, led to the gruesome death of 800,000 people, and was systematically ignored by the West.

Two girls. Victoria, a Rwandan girl, refugee in the  camp of Goma, Zaïre. Iris, a French girl, living in Paris. For a few months in 1994, they exchanged an unlikely correspondence. Then one day, the letters stopped. Victoria is a journey across time and place, through horror, guilt and hope. 

"Victoria is an attempt at making sense of the unthinkable and finding answers amongst the silence."

Her father's notebook. Grief stricken, she ignores the box at first. When her flat is broken into, she decides to pay a visit to the man who sent her the box.

 

Little White Lies is a story of deceit, and the damage caused by family secrets.
