Product Details


“Translator Daniel Seton has done a superb job Anglicizing Dard’s sometimes tortuous French colloquialisms and appropriating his conversational tone. . . . [Crush is] a short, sharp well-told tale.” The Wall Street Journal

“With their tight plots, the stories are particularly cinematic, and fi lm-makers are already showing interest. Dard also wrote screenplays and plays. Their revival could be just around the corner.” — The Observer 

“The wonder is that Frédéric Dard’s singular take on crime noir is not better known in this country. Served by an excellent translator, Dard has much to offer.” — Daily Mail

“The cleverness of Dard’s Georges Simenon-influenced novella lies in the way that it lulls you into thinking this is just another tale of a teenager’s shattered dreams… it is much darker than that.” — The Sunday Times

“A snappy and sassy little drama… Highly recommended.” — Bookbag

“No question: for me, he was the greatest.” Philippe Geluck

“A thrilling character study of a teenage girl driven to despair.” — International Crime Fiction

“His language is cutting, his point-of-view original and his verdict uncompromising… One of the few twentieth-century authors to win both critical acclaim and great popularity” - Solidarité Militaire

“The literary descendant of Simenon and Celine” – Le Figaro

“France’s most popular post-war author.” L’Express
