Editorial Reviews

World Literature Today
“One of the rare figures in contemporary French literature who never disappoints.”
Warren Motte
“Like Georges Perec before him, it seems that Gérard Gavarry approaches each of his books anew, unfettered by what he has done in the past, making him one of the most pleasingly unpredictable writers in our midst.”
