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.
