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 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
Moon in a Dead Eye, in which the paranoia of the residents of a gated retirement village spins out of control.
