One Hundred Days Without Lily
Original title: Cent jours sans Lily
Author: Aliénor Debrocq
One Hundred Days Without Lily is a faux thriller. Linda, a journalist, is writing a novel in which her alter ego tells the story of an investigation into a woman’s disappearance. Written one chapter a day, for a succession of a hundred days, and offering multiple perspectives, Aliénor Debrocq’s debut novel is a contemporary mystery novel set against the backdrop of current affairs: from Trump’s America to Russian history.
A debut novel that intertwines metaliterature with a mystery to create a page-turning contemporary narrative anchored in the migration crisis and feminism.
