Description

Garnier’s grisly short novels weave a profound and darkly comic tapestry of human experience.

Volume 2 includes Boxes, which tells the story of Brice, ‘the sole survivor of the natural disaster that at one time or another strikes us all, known as ‘moving house’’; The Front Seat Passenger, in which a widower discovers his wife had a lover and decides to track down his widow; The Islanders, whose protagonist Olivier finds himself thrown back together with a childhood friend with whom he shares a dark secret; and Moon in a Dead Eye, in which the paranoia of the residents of a gated retirement village spins out of control.
