About the Author

Jean-Philippe Toussaint is the author of nine novels, and the winner of numerous literary prizes, including the Prix Decembre for "The Truth about Marie". His writing has been compared to the works of Samuel Beckett, Jacques Tati, the films of Jim Jarmusch, and even Charlie Chaplin.

Reviews

"An original and significant writer, whose fiction can be as engaging as it is surprising."
"Toussaint is a genuinely funny writer . . . . small erotic moments are captured perfectly . . . makes me long for more by Toussaint."
"The combination of the absurd and the conscious intellect recalls such other French-language writers as Raymond Queneau in a style that is elegant, erudite, and joyously superficial."
