“By discovering the skeleton of a woman in a cave, the paleontologist has not only uncovered a 35,000-year-old burial, but also the first crime scene in history.

What revelation did Oli, this woman from the depths of time, peddle, dragging humanity into irremediable chaos? What did she want to tell us by placing the print of her mutilated hand at the center of this fresco of pain and helplessness? “Look what they have done to me”; “Look what they did to all of us!”

Oli wants to be a hunter because hunting is forbidden for women. Like all of the author’s heroines, she is carried by the same wind of freedom and she claims with bitter authority and caustic humor her right to happiness.

With a hilarious pen as sharp as her hunter’s spear, Hannelore Cayre leads the delighted reader to the heart of prehistory in the footsteps of our origins and plays with our eagerness to listen to stories.” (Presentation of Métailié editions)
