Product description


"Seven Houses in France is an enjoyable, somewhat frightening novel by one of Europe's best novelists... Atxaga is still the master of a complex story, told with deceptive simplicity." (Michael Eaude Independent)

"With his sixth novel, Basque writer Atxaga puts us squarely in Heart of Darkness territory, although his is a more blackly absurd version of the world than that of Joseph Conrad. Unsettling, often unpleasant, but undeniably compelling." (Amber Pearson Daily Mail)

"Bizarrely funny and beautifully crafted...His gift for interesting, unusual syntax, his wonderful pacing and surprising, vibrant language give one the feeling of being in safe hands." (Mira Mattar Times Literary Supplement)

"Atxaga tackles the excesses of colonialism with an assured touch; his humour is dark, the silenced voices of the natives are pointed, and his evocation of how reality becomes distorted when men are trapped in suffocating tedium is fascinatingly rigorous." (Metro)

"A dark comedy about the vanity of human desires which deftly balances compassion and cynicism" (Adrian Turpin Financial Times)

Book Description

Longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2012. A dark tale of human ambition by the European master A.S. Byatt has termed 'A brilliantly inventive writer'
