New book by Blondel to review

New book by Blondel to review

As most of you know, I also run France Book Tours, a virtual book tour company focusing on books related to France.

Jean-Philippe Blondel is an excellent contemporary French writer.
A few years ago, I reviewed The 6:41 to Paris.
He writes short and quirky books, like several other contemporary French authors.

ExposedNew Vessel Press is going to publish Exposed in May, and thanks to them, we have review copies available.

A French teacher on the verge of retirement is invited to a glittering opening that showcases the artwork of his former student, who has since become a celebrated painter. This unexpected encounter leads to the older man posing for his portrait. Possibly in the nude. Such personal exposure at close range entails a strange and troubling pact between artist and sitter that prompts both to reevaluate their lives.
Blondel, author of the hugely popular novel The 6:41 to Paris, evokes an intimacy of dangerous intensity in a tale marked by profound nostalgia and a reckoning with the past that allows its two characters to move ahead into the future.
