Money to Burn Praised in Libération
The French daily newspaper Libération has praised Money to Burn, Asta Olivia Nordenhof’s latest novel, in a fantastic review:
“One might traditionally expect a novel about a tragic, real-life event to be a fictionalized rewriting in the form of an investigation or melodramatic testimony, with characters whose lives are turned upside down, a bit like the Titanic. From the very first page, it becomes clear that this is something else entirely, something far more intriguing. […] Money to Burn is a beautifully written account of Kurt and Maggie’s love story, under the benevolent gaze of the narrator, who unfolds one section after another, like a folding screen. […] Asta Olivia Nordenhof fragments and superimposes the mercantile insensitivity and the heartbreaking and fatal destiny of a couple, the better to convey a form of social criticism.”
The French edition of Money to Burn was published by Les Argonautes Editeur on March 3rd.
