About the Author

Pascal Garnier, who died in March 2010, was a talented novelist, short story writer, children's author and painter. From his home in the mountains of the Ardèche, he wrote fiction in a noir palette with a cast of characters drawn from ordinary provincial life. Though his writing is often very dark in tone, it sparkles with quirkily beautiful imagery and dry wit. Garnier's work has been likened to the great thriller writer, Georges Simenon.


Jane Aitken is a publisher and translator from the French.

Reviews
'Dark enough to sink the hook deep into fans of noir.'
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

'If those kinds of tales--where bleak existentialism meets grisly crime--do something for you, then the novels of Frenchman Pascal Garnier are just about a sure bet for you. Likewise, if you appreciate Georges Simenon's romans durs, i.e. his harder, edgier novels, Garnier is your boy. Thanks to a run of English translations of some of Garnier's standout titles that have been published over the last few years, those of us who don't read French can now enjoy some of the work of the obscure (at least here in the U.S.) but brilliant novelist.'
