BOOK RECEIVED THIS PAST WEEK

Gallic Noir 1

Wow, I haven’t done a Mailbox Monday for ages!
This past week, thanks to the generosity of Belgravia Books / Gallic Books, I received the first volume of what it seems to be a new collection.
The first 2 volumes contain works by Pascal Garnier.

Volume 1 includes 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; 
How’s the Pain?, the tale of an ageing ‘pest exterminator’ taking on one last job on the French Riviera;
and 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?

I really enjoy Pascal Garnier’s writing. I have reviewed Moon in a Dead Eye, The Islanders, Too Close to the Edge, and The Eskimo Solution.
So I’m thrilled to discover these three I have not read yet.

Gallic Books’ logo is “The best of French in English”. That’s right.

 BOOK RECEIVED THIS PAST WEEK

the-great-and-the-good
to be released on January 10,
by Gallic Books
Received from the publisher

Arthur Morgan travels to New York in the 1950s. He encounters gilded youth, the rich and eccentric, and is invited to the White House. He succeeds in meeting the great and the good. But the repercussions of unfulfilled desires and love will resurface long after Arthur has returned to France.

Michel Déon, 97, is a very famous French author. I believe I actually only read one book by him, decades ago, so it will be interesting to reconnect, through an English translation.
