'Deliciously dark ... painfully funny' Marilyn Stasio, New York Times 'Brief, brisk, ruthlessly entertaining ... Garnier makes bleakness pleasurable' John Powers, Fresh Air, NPR 'Wickedly fun ... wonderfully dark' The Complete Review 'Readers will relish the late Pascal Garnier's graveyard humorous dark French noir' Midwest Book Review 'Exquisite noir' Publishers Weekly 'Garnier plunges you into a bizarre, overheated world, seething death, writing, fictions and philosophy. He's a trippy, sleazy, sly and classy read.' A. L. Kennedy 'A dark, richly odd and disconcerting world ... devastating and brilliant' Sunday Times 'Marvellously unpredictable' The Guardian 'A mixture of Albert Camus and JG Ballard' Financial Times 'Makes you grin as well as wince.' Sunday Telegraph 'Garnier's take on the frailty of life has a bracing originality.' Sunday Times
