Live Fast

This autobiographical novel is the author’s dissection of a tragic moment in her life, allowing her to reflect upon the events that led to the motorcycle accident that cost the life of her husband Claude on June 22nd, 1999. Over twenty years later, Brigitte Giraud wonders if there might have been more to the accident than meets the eye, if it wasn’t a matter of luck, destiny, or coincidences, and if she could’ve done something about it through the smallest of actions. Her mind thus steers her back to where things might have in fact all begun, the moment when they had bought a new house, a house for which she got the keys but in which her husband would never be able to live with her and their child.

"Live Fast" is a personal, intimate work, written with the flavor of an enigma, with elements of mystery, as if the author and the reader are waiting for some unexpected revelation - a technique that keeps the interest alive until the last page.
