Description

At least vultures have the decency to wait until their prey’s dead before picking it apart …After losing his wife and suffering a stroke, cantankerous retiree Edouard Lavenant has moved from Lyon to a village in the mountains with his put-upon nurse, Therese. One day, a man comes to the door claiming to be Edouard’s long-lost son. Edouard’s temper seems to be softening, but it isn’t long before the local vultures are circling overhead …

Publisher Review

'Garnier plunges you into a bizarre, overheated world, seething death, writing, fictions and philosophy. He's 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' Financial Times; '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
