"Claustria", dans la cave de Joseph Fritzl

Il a séquestré sa fille pendant 24 ans et lui a fait sept enfants. Régis Jauffret a fait un livre de cet épouvantable fait divers révélé en 2008.

Claustria (éditions du Seuil) relate l'histoire effrayante de cet autrichien qui a enfermé et violé sa fille pendant des années, dans la cave de la maison familiale. C'est pourtant une oeuvre de fiction, inspirée du réel, à l'instar de De sang-froid , de Truman Capote.

Régis Jauffret explique qu'il a utilisé la fiction pour combler les manques laissés par le procès, auquel il a d'ailleurs assisté pour tenter de comprendre au mieux la personnalité de Joseph Fritzl.

En retraçant une histoire bouleversante et parfois choquante, Régis Jauffret traite du mystère plat d'un monstre, qui n'est ni paranoïaque ni schizophrène, un monstre froid, qui ne regrette rien, "le mal absolu " selon l'auteur.
