"L'Olympe des Infortunes est un terrain vague coincé entre une décharge publique et la mer, où se décomposent au soleil des dieux déchus. Il y a Ach le Borgne, qui sait mieux que personne magnifier les clochards ; Junior le Simplet ; Mania la Fantomatique ; le Pacha et sa cour de soûlards, et bien d'autres personnages encore, aussi obscurs qu'attachants. C'est un pays de mirages et de grande solitude où toutes les hontes sont bues comme sont tus les plus terribles secrets. À travers ce voyage philosophique, Yasmina Khadra nous propose une escale dans l'univers des paumés ; un univers fait de tendresse et de cocasseries, de rêves invraisemblables et de possessions abusives où surgissent, parfois, de cuisantes questions sur te Mensonge et la Culpabilité."--Page 4 of cover
