Gaëlle Obiégly is an art historian and the author of ten novels. In Une chose sérieuse, Daniel, the protagonist, writes in secret about his life in a survivalist community, funded by Madame Chambray, a wealthy and manipulative patron. Daniel, the woman’s guinea pig and scribe, must write the memoires of Chambray, and he accepts the implantation of a microchip in his brain, one that increases his abilities but decreases his free will. Daniel uses the little time that remains to him, free of vigilance, to write the raw material for this novel. In conversation with Paula Canal.
