I discovered Benjamin Constable five years ago with his Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa and really enjoyed his writing style. So when he contacted me a few weeks ago about his upcoming novel, I said yes right away! Love And Invention is set in France like his first book. Even though it’s written in English, it’s published by a small publisher in Avignon, Le Délirium, which is pretty cool – they did a great job with the cover as well, perfect for the book.
Le Délirium also organizes cultural events.
