The fireman she meets at the disco when she sneaks out one night? Or with Arnaud, the coolest boy she knows? She'd like to see more of her father, even though he's so embarrassing. As for her mother, she's too depressed. Something to do with the photo of the dead boy on the mantelpiece. Monsieur Bihotz, her neighbour who lives alone now that his mother has died, is supposed to be her babysitter but Solange has other ideas. There's really not much scope in her boring village, Cleves. But who cares, Solange will get to do it, go all the way, whatever it takes. Marie Darrieussecq's All the Way is a brilliant and hilarious picture of an adolescent girl

Rapport de police : accusations de plagiat et autres modes de surveillance de la fiction by Marie Darrieussecq( Book )
13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in French and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Accusée à deux reprises de plagiat - une première fois par Marie NDiaye en 1998 - et plus récemment par Camille Laurens, Marie Darrieussecq a voulu comprendre ce qui lui était arrivé et, bien sûr, se défendre de cette accusation renouvelée. Elle s'est donc penchée sur la notion de plagiat, sur l'histoire de ce concept à travers la littérature. Elle s'est aperçue que nombre d'écrivains, et pas des moindres, ont eu à subir cette accusation. Et s'il ne s'agit pas de banaliser par le nombre - tous plagiaires - il s'agit de se demander comment on en arrive là. À quoi sert-elle, cette accusation de plagiat ? Comment << prend-elle >>, pourquoi trouve-t-elle toujours tant d'échos ? Qu'est-ce que cela veut dire, d'un état de la critique et des institutions littéraires, d'un état de la société puisque la littérature fait symptôme ? Que l'accusation de plagiat soit une tentative d'assassinat symbolique, c'est une évidence. Concurrence entre écrivains, conflits de personnes et autres trivialités psychologiques, certes. Mais l'intérêt de cette ample étude est aussi de démontrer qu'elle participe d'un dispositif plus vaste : un empêchement général, une chape de plomb faite d'interdits, de sacralité et d'anathèmes. Une surveillance de la fiction, qui vaut pour toute écriture non appropriée, et dont est retracée ici la longue histoire, de Platon au goulag
