After a first historical novel, War, Montreal, Jean-Fran├žois Delisle signs a more psychological novel here. A young girl, prey to her own quest for identity, comes to seduce her adoptive father. The many twists and turns of the story lived by the character make it a kind of initiatory journey.

Up-to-date version of the Electre complex in Quebec, Backlighting is a gentle venture into the meanders of the human psyche. The underlying theme of the quest for identity, still relevant in Quebec, makes this thrilling story a fascinating whole.
