Enter the world of Pascal Garnier, where life’s misfits take centre stage, there is drama in the everyday and the unexpected is always just around the corner.
Dark, funny and shot through with menace, these perfectly crafted novellas are also affecting studies in human alienation.
Massively acclaimed by both reviewers and fellow authors, Garnier has been compared to many other writers, yet he remains the master of his own unique brand of Gallic noir.
Volume 1 includes:
The A26, in which a new Picardy motorway brings modernity close to a flat in which a brother and sister live together, haunted by terminal illness and the events of 1945
How’s the Pain?, the tale of an ageing ‘pest exterminator’ taking on one last job on the French Riviera
The Panda Theory, in which a stranger, Gabriel, arrives in a Breton town and befriends the locals … but is he as angelic as he seems?
