My Crimes in Berry

Version française

Each written in the first person, these short stories draw us into the often-twisted minds of men and women at the center of astonishing criminal cases. Whether found guilty or simply accused, each protagonist narrates their own life story, sometimes inexcusable, sometimes disgusting, pitiful, or simply hopeless. Vile beasts that revolt us, egotistical weaklings swept up into a chain of events, or victims broken by life, each protagonist captivates the reader as they tell their stories from beginning to end.

Deeply anchored in their region, the narrators bring us to the towns and villages of Champagne berrichonne, Boischaut, and Sancerrois. A journey through the historical Berry region of central France, its people and terroirs!
