Undercurrents

Marie Darrieussecq (Author) Linda Coverdale (Translator)

Description

An international literary superstar since the publication of her "fascinating and original" (The New York Times Book Review) first novel, Pig Tails, and her "tender, extraordinarily nuanced" (Publishers Weekly) follow-up novel, My Phantom Husband--an immediate number one bestseller in France--Marie Darrieussecq now gives us her greatest triumph to date.

InUndercurrents, a mother and daughter mysteriously disappear to a deserted seaside town in France, as the novel poetically evokes the varied moods and rich palette of the ocean. From seemingly simple events, Darrieussecq deftly plunges the reader into a sensual, surrealistic literary experience grounded in--yet worlds away from--day-to-day reality.

Called "truly inspired" by Le Pointe and "gripping" by Le Monde, Undercurrents fulfills and exceeds our expectations of this talented young author.
