    "In her second novel, the author evokes a passion that consumes a woman and a fulfilled mother
    We know the song. That doesn't stop us from wanting to hum it again. Love, desire, loss, expectation, the painful joy of self-denial; in short, passion. Ariane thought she would never ask herself this question (which in any case is never asked as such, but is imposed).
    This Burgundian by adoption, to whom everything seemed to be promised, can believe that everything has been granted to her. That is, a handsome and rich husband, three children and, last but not least, books, lots to read and some to write. Welcome to the world's happy people.
    But sometimes, as every reader of Proust knows, all it takes is someone who is not your type... For Ariane, it will be a young bar owner (ten years younger than her); a nothing, a look, a body, a possible horizon...
    Ariane is the heroine, so lost, so moving, of "L'homme que je ne devais pas aimer", the second novel - which makes no secret of being autofictional - by Agathe Ruga. It is a precious book that "plays with your skin" on every page. The love here is that of men, eternally loved, eternally lost. It floats over all this like a perfume of childhood, of pleasure and sorrow. It is his life. Our life." Sud Ouest
