La Trilogie des jumeaux d'A. Kristof

The story of the brothers Lucas and Claus, from their birth to the adult age is also the story of a Europe devastated by war then divided by an iron curtain. Le Grand Cahier is the novel of a survivor in a world of widespread violence. La Preuve, is the story of a separation marked by an insurmountable frontier.  Le Troisième Mensonge questions these novels by exposing the fragility of the frontier between truth and lie. The minimalist writing is deprived of any pathos and the apparent equanimity of the narration and the twisted structure of these three novels are part of the captivating power of this work, evident in its concern with existential loneliness and political exile.
