Praise

“In lucid, elegant prose Patrick Lapeyre explores the obsessive love of two men for the same woman. Wonderfully cinematic, readers will be quickly seduced by this engrossing story told with a sensibility that could only be French. A truly memorable novel!” —Katharine Davis, author of Capturing Paris and East Hope

“An appealing oddness of language elevates Lapeyre’s English-language debut above the standard love triangle story.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“Lapeyre writes with great wit and sly craft on the miseries of unfulfilled relationships.” —Kirkus 
 
“There are no easy answers in Lapeyre’s discomfiting novel… but the journey is absorbing.” —New York Times Book Review
