The Premises of a Novel

The story of my novel started about a year and a half ago. I was pregnant up to my eyes, bound to my couch, with many characters running through my head. They decided to set up home in my head until I put them down on paper. However, I didn’t know what to do. What did they want from me? Why were they showing up now? What can they bring? To this day, I still don’t have an answer to these questions, but one thing is sure, they’ve enabled me to reveal myself and feel fulfilled.

The day of dog by Patrick Bauwen, a magnificant ice-cold slap !

This novel is a real page turner! Once the reader has hold of it, he is gripped and entrapped by its captivatingly cunning story.

Patrick Bauwen plays with the dark and obscure depths of the human soul, taking with him the reader, who sees only fire! A manipulation that allows the author to ask a question, that can be likened to philosophy: how do human beings play with the duality of their personalities?

Patrick Bauwen kindly allows the reader to sit on the tip of the ice berg and lets them drift smoothly on the silent frozen sea of his sulphurous story; whilst the hidden clues and false trails work furtively in the submerged part of this immense block of ice. Love, suffering, doubts, fears leading to chills…

Such a shaman, the author captivates the reader with his fiendishly unpredictable writing, manipulating them right until the very last line of the novel. Gasping, breathtaking…in this novel, Patrick Bauwen doesn’t show his true power, he exercises it with sublime delicacy and a wonderful subtlety.
