THE MOTHER
OF MATTHIEU AND THOMAS


The point of view of the mother
of the two handicapped boys

Modifications to the original site
after the author and the book's publisher injonction
in November of 2009.

>VERSION FRANCAISE

I am the mother of Matthieu and Thomas, the two reluctant heros of a very successful
book I am not allowed to name.
It seems that many readers have not understood that this book is a novel, and have taken it literally, down to its most caricaturist details.
Having had to respond to many absurd questions and rumors regarding my life and that of my sons ever since its release, I have finally decided to set up a site that interested readers may refer to.
I will take this occasion to attempt to correct the false impression people have received of my sons.
An image particularly abusive in this book, in which they are represented as a couple of shameful, useless ball and chains with which no one can establish any sort of real relationship.
This has not been my experience.
Throughout my entire life, I have always taken the time to get to know and to educate my boys. I can promise you that their existence has been far from useless.

I refuse the despairing thought that the passage of Matthieu and Thomas on this earth was fated to no purpose.
To no purpose other than to overwhelm their father with grief and to serve as the subject of a book, however excellent it may be.
