Bored by his aimless life, sixty-year-old Marc decides to take his cat and his grown-up daughter, Anne, on an impromptu road trip. Despite its promising start, the journey soon takes a turn for the bizarre, and easy-going Marc comes to realise he doesn’t really know his daughter at all. Shocking, hilarious and poignant, this final book from Pascal Garnier, published shortly before his death, is the author on top form. The book features an Introduction by John Banville, Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sea, who describes Garnier as ‘the true heir to Simenon’. AUTHOR: Pascal Garnier, who died in March 2010, was a talented novelist, short story writer, children’s author and painter. From his home in the mountains of the Ardeche, he wrote fiction in a noir palette with a cast of characters drawn from ordinary provincial life. Though his writing is often very dark in tone, it sparkles with quirkily beautiful imagery and dry wit.
