An island cut off from the rest of the planet for several decades finds itself governed by a totalitarian “Norm” periodically updated by public opinion. Democracy paradoxically becomes oppressive. An impulsive gesture in this hyper-conformist world will propel Clay on an unexpected quest, in search of a mysterious character from whom all traces seem to have been intentionally erased. Throughout “Norms”, Clay leads the investigation at the risk of losing more than just feathers.
Francis Schneider takes us into a surprising universe. An atmosphere of a novel of anticipation, all the more worrying as the parallels with our own world are sometimes very strong. Standard is a thrilling story with multiple twists and turns, for readers of all ages.
