The author and psychotherapist Ghizlaine Chraibi takes up residence Friday, February 8, at the French Institute of Oujda to discuss her second novel “The Embrace of caterpillars.” In this book, the writer projects us into the future in the heart of Fractalie, a country that looks like Morocco.
Except that, in her imagination (or her prediction), the matriarchal system has dethroned the patriarchal system. But since women have taken power, they control everything: from home to administration to business to the state. As for our dear men, they are simply lost. And love stories are forbidden… Ghizlaine Chraibi depicts a world in which women have taken their revenge. But what an act of revenge!
A novel that encourages reflection. For the author makes us discover a universe where feminine speech is not an automatic synonym for feminism, nor the masculine word a mechanical reference to patriarchal machismo.
