Product Description

Review

"If you want to read something that's witty, inventive, shocking and great fun, pick up a Pennac" (Paul Duncan Crime Time)

"Daniel Pennac's Belleville novels, centring on a character called Malaussène, have apparently acquired cult status in France. It is easy to see why" (Allan Massie Scotsman)

"There is a precision of touch here that is something like the "lightness" Italo Calvino identified in the best folk literature . . . A crime novel that breaks off to discuss the relative merits of Kafka, Antelme, Defoe and Cioran is an odd, but oddly entertaining crime novel" (Brian Dillon Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description

Readers of Daniel Pennac novels will find here all the elements of the author's wittily inventive plotting that characterise his fiction.

Format: Paperback
Originally appeared in the French weekly magazine "Nouvel Observateur" as a feuilleton after its challenge to Daniel Pennac to give a following to the Mallausène saga. With this novel, Pennac manages to renew himself and delivers a very good piece of work to compare in quality to the first novels in the Mallaussène saga.
The unbelievable shall happen;Thérèse, Malaussène's fortune-teller sister, is getting married. Moreover, the chosen one is not of the taste of Mallaussène: Mr Marie-Colbert is an eminent graduate from the "École Nationale d'Administration", élite of the Republic!
Are Malaussène's bad feeling about Thérèse's lover to be trusted or is is just normal jealousy from an overprotective brother?
A galloping story full of wit and humour.

Format: Paperback
I can see why this is a hit in France, this series by Daniel Pennac is funny and clever and a bit surreal in places! The characterisation is superb. I am reading them out of sync but that's ok. They are a great, fun read.
