Chris Bergeron presents the long-awaited sequel to the bestselling novel Valide, published in 2021.
This first opus won over both critics and the public in addition to being a finalist for prizes such as the Literary Prize for College Students and the Prize for Imaginary Horizons. A film adaptation is also in the works.
A year has passed since David was sabotaged by the 5%. A year marked by a fierce struggle aimed at preventing the resurgence of this artificial intelligence obsessed with the standardization of humanity. The objective being to preserve the diversity of human lives at all costs, Valide, born from the memories of Christelle and the power of David, seeks her place in this revolution that she believed to be somewhat her own. Faced with the risk of total formatting, they must turn to the stars.
Now anchored in the register of the cyber learning novel rather than in anticipatory autofiction, the author pushes her reflection even further on the complex dynamic between humanity and technology.
A novel that will not go unnoticed at a time when questions of gender identity are intertwined with important social issues.
