About the Author
Florence Noiville, author and journalist, has been a staff writer for Le Monde since 1994, and editor of foreign fiction for Le Monde des Livres, the paper's literary supplement. She is the author of many books, including most recently, Attachment, also published by Seagull Books. Teresa Lavender Fagan is a freelance translator living in Chicago.

"Noiville's Hitchcock-style psychological thriller will satisfy even the most ardent suspense fan. . . . Those looking for a gripping read will not be disappointed."

--Publishers Weekly
"What is revealed in A Cage in Search of a Bird by Noiville, is the presence--as strong as it is inexplicable--of love in hatred. One must love greatly to make another suffer."--Milan Kundera
"By reviving de Clérambault's syndrome and showing how it can lead to treacherous consequences, Noiville focuses on intricate emotions to which novelists have paid less attention. The final pages are worthy of a thriller: the plot intensifies as amorous attraction vies with amorous resentment. Both feelings coexist and collide, to the point that murder and suicide become possibilities."
--Arts Fuse
"A fascinating, thrilling diversion."--Rain Taxi
"Look into the mirror, you might not recognize what you see. Watch someone else gaze into the exact same mirror, you might just see yourself. Noiville tackles issues of identity and belonging like few other novelists. A Cage in Search of a Bird is smart, suspenseful, and powerful."--Colum McCann
"Noiville immerses readers in Laura's dreadful situation right from the start. . . . A Cage in Search of a Bird is at its best when it charges ahead in the present. . . . It makes for a quick, solid little personal thriller."--Complete Review
"A Cage in Search of a Bird is an engrossing psychological thriller that examines the emotional depths of obsession. The book is gripping as it explores the relationship between two friends who become tortured by each other's presence. Throughout the compelling novel, the question of who is the bird and who is the cage is present in every suspenseful detail. . . . Noiville's novel is a sharp, taut thriller, both thought-provoking and terrifying."--Foreword Review
