MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

    rating systemrating systemrating systemrating system

Do you like quirky and dark? Then French writers are the right thing for you, especially contemporary ones. The Suicide Shop, by Jean Teulé, that I reviewed here a couple of years ago, fits the bill. And the book I’m presenting today does very well too. Smoking Kills is the latest book by Antoine Laurain available in English. The President’s Hat was certainly quirky enough.
