French bloggers on La Maison des Épreuves

“It is a book that opens paths, that deploys a range of imaginings crafted with very great virtuosity. And which, at the same time, has this power, a kind of harrowing intimate resonance, the experience of which you have no choice but to accept.”

— NIKOLA DELESCLUSE, Paludes radio show

La Maison des Épreuves cuts a torturous path in a form that is new, surprising, destabilizing… The game is dangerous: we leave it troubled — or rather, awakened… It is one of the most poetic and striking publications (from Éditions de l’Ogre) and must be read at any cost.”

— LOU DARSAN, Lou et les feuilles volantes

“Jason Hrivnak proves that there can be rightness in the extreme, tenderness in the darkness of the soul, and beauty in horror… La Maison des Épreuves is at once a work of magic and a tour de force.”

— HÉLOÏSE, Un Dernier Livre Avant la Fin du Monde

“This work, beyond the adventurous spirit that seizes us in reading it, is truly an anti-suicide manual and a guide for reenchantment with the world… Personally, if (Hrivnak) is able to repeat such a miracle, staggering in its intelligence and playful subtlety, then I for one would want it, and soon.”
