Description

Volume 1 includes How’s the Pain?, the tale of an ageing `pest exterminator’ taking on one last job on the French Riviera; The Panda Theory, in which a stranger, Gabriel, arrives in a Breton town and befriends the locals … but is he as angelic as he seems?; and The A26, in which a new Picardy motorway brings modernity close to a flat in which a brother and sister live together, haunted by terminal illness and the events of 1945.

Publisher Review

`A trippy, sleazy, sly and classy read' A. L. Kennedy; 'Horribly funny ... appalling and bracing in equal measure' John Banville; 'A mixture of Albert Camus and JG Ballard' FT; 'Bleak, often funny and never predictable' The Observer; 'A brilliant exercise in grim and gripping irony, it makes you grin as well as wince.' Sunday Telegraph; 'Deliciously dark ... painfully funny' New York Times
